The philosophy “simple but excellent” is mirrored in the restaurant: Simple, unpretentious yet delicious dishes such as “Salade de chèvre frais” and “Daube de boeuf (cooked in Grand Cru red wine)” are lovingly prepared, using only locally sourced, organic (and ethical) ingredients. Most ingredients are coming directly from nearby farms who apply 100% biological and long-term sustainable farming methods.
From free-range eggs to hand-made goat cheeses, from seasonal vegetables to ethically farmed meat (from free range animals that have not suffered from long transports and industrial slaughter houses), all aspects of the food chain have been carefully considered and been arranged correspondingly.
The small menu with daily specials is complimented by an extensive wine list that allows connoisseurs to combine their favorite comfort food with some of the world’s best wines, available not only by the bottle, but also by the glass (thanks to the revolutionary Coravin system) at affordable prizes.
The wine list features many second wines from legendary Bordeaux estates in the best “appelations” that offer spectacular value for money. Small producers from Burgundy and of course Champagne are equally present as world-renowned names.
Finally, also the coffee has received special attention. Italy’s oldest family – owned coffee roaster, Caffè Vergnano from Turin, has created several special blends for La Maison Bleue. However, it doesn’t stop here: A custom made coffee trolley has been created that showcases not only the three different coffee bean blends to La Maison Bleue’s customers, but which allows to grind the beans right at the customer’s table and prepare the coffee “sur place”, using either a legendary Italian espresso machine, a US filter system or an Italian brewing pot.
La Maison Bleue brings international cocktail culture to rural Provence, serving a curated selection of cocktail classics, from Americanos and Negronis to Manhattans and Gin & Tonics…
