Chef Amandine Chaignot is far from a beginner. She has worked in the finest establishments and alongside renowned chefs such as Jean-François Piège, Éric Frechon, Yannick Alléno and Christopher Hache. This experience and expertise led her to being appointed chef at the Hôtel Raphaël restaurant. In late 2019, however, she decided to open her very own restaurant called Pouliche (“filly” in English). This is one horse you can bet on, with scrumptious appetizers followed by creative dishes that give pride of place to natural, plant-based ingredients, like the Brussels sprouts salad with citron, farmed mussels and roasted sunflower seeds, the Landes poultry with spinach and burrata, and pear compote with pumpkin nougatine, all stunning choices available in a three-course prix-fixe menu at €55 (€28 for lunch). To waste no space, the lovely restaurant has just rolled out a charming and sunny terrace with seating for 25, well-spaced tables, and just the right arrangement of plants and flowers to create a relaxing, bucolic setting. Nice wine list with a few little gems at reasonable prices.
