Café de la Lavande

Place de la Fontaine
Lardiers , France

Hang out in this cozy village bistro and dine on a magnificently fatty sauté of veal with salsify. You may even spot director Adrian Lyne - known to visit the spot. AOC Haute-Provence olive oil from chef-owner Burollet's own trees is drawn and sold from a stainless-steel canister inside the front door. Artichokes are prepared à la grecque (braised with lemon, olive oil, and coriander seeds), cornichons are fanned atop house-made duck pâté, and a gratin of puréed salt cod hids a fleecy interior.
