◆ Le Taquin

-

A stone’s throw from the celebrated Capucins Market, Le Taquin is a card-carrying ‘locavore’ establishm­ent. The paired-down menu offers 2 starters, mains and desserts each day, which sounds simple enough. But ‘taquiner’ means to tease and chef Hadrian Lavaud does just that. Using south-west French cuisine as a base, he plays with Italian, Spanish and even British ingredient­s and flavours. Beef Wellington comes with sauce Perigueux, a rich, pungent reduction of white wine and black truffles, and confit of apples is partnered with an orange-flower panna cotta.
