Le Chapon Fin Restaurant Review

: This Bordeaux institution, which has seen the likes of Sarah Bernhardt and Alphonso XIII, has a fabulous wine cellar. Try dishes like scampi and Aquitaine caviar "en boîte," sea bass served at a low tempertaure, leek-potato bouillon with fried oyster in sorbet, roast veal with eggplant coque, grué de cacao, and Espelette pepper with lemon and licorice jus. We'll let you be surprised by the Belle Époque décor, one of the most amazing in France.
