Bienbon in Saint Remy

by Wendy VanHatten

On a side street in Saint Remy sits a small, inviting outdoor seating area for a small restaurant. Don’t pass this one up.

If the menu looked intriguing and delicious, it’s because the food is exactly that. Fresh ingredients that are well prepared greeted us at every course.

Their signature drink the night we were there was an interesting take on an Aperol Spritz. Refreshing. The fennel, sliced impossibly thin, paired with sweet cantaloupe that was sliced just as thin was topped with thin strips of Parmesan. A barely there dressing of lemon and olive oil enhanced the dish rather than overpowered it.

Poulpe, octopus, with corn cream and roasted padron peppers, was a delicious take on something you might not think to order. It was yummy.

Affogato with house-made vanilla bean gelato was just the perfect ending to a wonderful meal.

If You Go: Bienbon is located at 17 Rue du Huit Mai 1945, Saint-Remy, France
