Fodor's Expert Review Le Mas Bottero

$$$$ Provence Dinner Fodor's Choice
If you're headed from Aix to the Vaucluse or any point north of the city, do what the local gourmands do and get thee to this gastronomic restaurant 23 k (14 miles) northwest of Aix on France's famous Nationale 7 (D7). A veteran of top kitchens from London to Switzerland, Nicolas Bottero struck out on his own in 2017, creating cuisine of utmost refinement but without a trace of fussiness and following the seasons and the local producers. In fall and winter expect squash, wild game, and local mushrooms, and in summer all the bounty of Provence. This is the perfect spot for a long lunch, but whether you're coming for lunch or dinner, be sure to allow enough time to savor what's sure to be a stellar meal.
