From this beautiful mansion, where the mythical chef Gérard Ryngel once presided, Jérôme Ponchelle now bears the historical torch with his elegant traditional cuisine. Largely inspired by the nearby Loire Valley, this chef, who has worked at some of the UK’s best restaurants, masterfully amplifies excellent local ingredients (asparagus, frogs’ legs, fish from the Loire Valley…). One also comes for the location’s infinite charm (a garden with trees, a terrace), the thoughtful service, and the pleasant wine list.
