This family-run classic is known for using seasonal delicacies—autumnal wild mushrooms, salt cod during Lent, local tuna in high summer—and preparing them in as many as a dozen variations to highlight the star ingredients.
The menu features everything from simple scrambled eggs with salt cod to a decadent foie gras with Armagnac.
