Al­fresco Din­ing

Where Paris - - Dining -

Set in an exquisitely man­i­cured park of vel­vety green lawns, flower-filled gar­dens and an­cient shade trees, Au­berge des Tem­pli­ers is one of the most leg­endary ho­tels in France. It was one of the orig­i­nal Re­lais & Chateaux ho­tels and was for many years the first stop of happy Parisians head­ing south for sunny hol­i­days on the Route N7, of­ten called “La Route du Soleil”. This de­light­ful ho­tel is a bril­liant ad­dress just out of Paris for the plea­sure of its set­ting and also the cui­sine of its tal­ented chef, Ja­panese born Yoshi­hiko Miura. The best value here is the Sig­na­ture Menu for 135 eu­ros, which be­gins with hors d’oeu­vres, and con­tin­ues with dressed crab with av­o­cado, yuzu and curry oil, fol­lowed by sea bass with Sologne caviar in a Marinière sauce, grilled lamb with bean sprouts and red onions, an ex­cel­lent cheese trol­ley, and a dessert of your choos­ing. And dur­ing the sum­mer months they have a day-day-tar­iff for any­one who wants to come idle in the gar­den, pad­dle around in the pool and lunch on the su­perb Ja­panese food served by their sum­mer pool­side pop-up restau­rant from 11am to 6pm daily. – A.L.
