Le Mas Bottero
Nicolas Bottero used to have one Michelin star in Grenoble, but he decided to move back to the South-East of France where, early June this year, he opened le Mas Bottero in the village of Saint- Cannat near Aix-en-Provence.
We had lunch there on Saturday August 19th and for 29 euros you have an entrée, a main dish and a dessert which probably makes it one of the best deal in terms of quality and price in the region. We forgot to mention that the menu changes every day depending on the market supply.
Nicolas' entrée was the knockout pumpking salad, his main dish a crispy cuttlefish on a bed of risotto which unfortunately we found not to be at the level of his entrée, but he regained the upper hand with dessert, a wine peach soup with light cream.
His new restaurant or « Mas » as they call it in the South of France was nicely and soberly decorated with light wood and wicker chairs, there is also a beautiful terrace.
The service by the maitre d' and sommelier, Nicolas Gilardi was welcoming and perfect,
For the wine we tasted the cuvée of white wine from Château de Beaupré 2013 which happens to be nearby,
We think that Nicolas Bottero needs a few more months to settle down in his new surroundings and completely master his new cooking. Then he will be a serious contender to retrieve his Michelin star, hopefully for him and his team, by next year or the following.
