William Ledeuil is one of those rare chefs who has got fusion just right at his convivial, gourmet restaurant. Or, rather, he has created his own distinctive Franco-Asian style, marrying Lozère lamb and French fish with Asian herbs and condiments, like wasabi and Thai basil. Dinner comes with mystery amuse-gueules, and many dishes use raw or plancha-grilled preparations, perhaps veal confit with tamarind, scallops with bergamot. Desserts are original, too. And it’s called Kitchen Galerie because you see can see Ledeuil and his team at work in the open kitchen, and the dining area is a loft-like space with modern art on the walls.
