The chef at the restaurant at La Gentilhommière (see ‘Places to Stay’), René-Georges Pianetti has a modern and dynamic style of cooking for those who want something other than Burgundian classics. Pork breast cooked for eight hours then caramelized with acacia honey, a croque-monsieur with large prawns and a mixed leaf salad, seasonal asparagus roasted with rosemary and sun-dried tomatoes are among his creations. There are four different menus, alongside the à la carte menu. Not surprisingly, the wines of Nuits St-Georges are the stars of the wine list.

Useful information: Menus: €23.50 (lunch only) - €62. Closed all day Tuesday, plus Wednesday and Saturday lunchtimes.
