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 emmenthal cheese soufflé with chestnut cracklings and a butternut squash coulis are delicately rendered. Entrées include traditional dishes like sea scallops in a garlic emulsion with pommes noisette. There are also several items demonstrating a fusion of ingredient combinations and flavors like the venison saddle in poivrade sauce served with a rosemary-scented purée of Granny Smith apples and braised red cabbage. Fortunately, desserts like the ginger-soaked carrot cake with butterscotch Bartlett pear and the tropical-inspired pineapple tarte Tatin with rum ice cream and an exotic fruit coulis, as well as good espressos, 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.
