Le St Julien – Beychevelle

We were not able to get a reservation at Cordeillan-Bages for dinner, but they recommended in Beychevelle the Restaurant Le St. Julien, a little restaurant about 10 minutes away. It is small and cozy with country-type cuisine.

A number of photos didn’t come out so I won’t post them.

Not pictured – An amuse of mousse de champignons on the bottom of a shot glass, then a layer of some type of herb mousse with bacon on top. Nice, with no bells and whistles.

First Course 
Not pictured – my husband – Ravioli of mushrooms – good, well made

Me – Marinated Salmon with creme fraiche and salmon eggs

Second Course Parfait of Artichoke and Foie Gras served cold- this was excellent once I deconstructed the dish and moved the greens to the side

This wasn’t fancy cooking; it was more reminiscent of grand-mere cuisine. But it was much better than some of the other non-starred restaurants we tried.
