La Panetiere Restaurant Restaurant Review: The natural elegance of La Panetière, enhanced by its rustic sign nestled among a garden of wildflower bouquets, reflects the restaurant’s Provençale-style cuisine. Appetizers like the buttered tagliatelle and braised short rib with hen of the wood mushrooms, pecorino and Indian long peppercorn reflect the kitchen’s emphasis on seasonality. Entrées include inventive combinations like medallions of lobster with rouille, minestrone of vegetable and saffron potatoes, and a seared duck breast with cauliflower, grapes, fresh almonds and butternut squash sauce. Fortunately, desserts like the crumbled macaroons served with almond and vanilla ice cream drizzled with a chocolate and apricot sauce allow one to end a meal on a high note. Don’t miss the black currant dome if it’s available. A notable wine list includes by-the-glass options.
