La Petite Plage à Biarritz and signature cuisine

Author’s kitchen, sunset and feet in the sand. Welcome to La Petite plage in Biarritz. Coincidentally or coincidentally, restaurant is installed just above the Old Port, more commonly called “La petite plage”. Halfway between the Basque Coast and the Rock of the Virgin, with the ocean as far as the eye can see, it’s hard to find a better location for a post-bathing lunch or a romantic dinner. Inside, in the large rattan chairs or on the waterfront terrace, La Petite Plage is one of the best spots in town to enjoy the “sunset” as they say there. To create the map , the house appealed to the star chef Éric Frechon (former supervisor of the first two La Petite Plage establishments in Saint-Tropez and Saint-Barth) and entrusted the reins of the kitchen to Etienne Barrier, a former Raphael (Paris 16th) .Result , well thought out plates, prepared and made from local products. Start with a gargantuan artichoke-shaped entree, dug inside and garnished with a demented bean salad, anchovies and grilled hazelnuts. Next, a royal sea bream ceviche energized by hints of garlic and jalapeños pepper and a beef tataki as tender as it is firm. Then come the signature dish of the house, a huge slice of octopus snacked on the grill, topped with a Basque chorizo ​​sauce, spicy as it should be, and then a supreme poultry farmer from the Landes, placed on lemon gnocchi, tomatoes candied and fresh basil. Special mention for the ultra-regressive meat juice. A short break after the dishes, time to sip a homemade cocktail, feet in the sand and then land on the table a XXL rum baba with just the right amount of rum . What to finish the meal in great pomp. We are well received in the Basque Country, especially at Mr. Frechon’s!
