3 Chef's Hats in the Gault & MillauGuide

"While we wouldn't say that Pascal Bastian is a traditional chef, tradition has been kept alive in is this distinguished 18th century establishment, which has been one of the region's culinary strongholds for decades. The chef reveals an imaginative and modern side in his à la carte and set menus, with dishes such as cannelloni with duck foie gras fried with wild mushrooms, black truffle emulsion, back of turbot roasted on the bone, Piedmont hazelnut and flat parsley crust, mashed apple with brown butter, roast fillet of duckling, rhubarb and black olive confit, Alsace-style griesknepfle… The restaurant's contemporary interior is both understated and restful, and its huge selection of wines extends well beyond the region of Alsace."
