◆ Belle Campagne
Menus here detail the provenance of all the ingredients used, with a promise that nothing is sourced from more than 250km away. The menus replicate with the rhythms of the countryside, and are changed every 2 months. In early summer, expect rainbow trout with sauce vierge, tail of beef braised in red wine or slow-grilled Cestas suckling-lamb. Vegetables are treated with respect, white asparagus from The Landes transformed into a light but creamy velouté. The decor at Belle Campagne is flea-market chic. Sunday brunch is a firm local favourite, and we love the tapas served at the bar a standing ovation for the chips cooked in duck fat.
