Summary: A serene space with a touch of Asia.
Le Benaton, a tranquil haven nestled in the heart of Burgundy, offers an intimate dining experience with a Zen atmosphere and a touch of Asian influence. The venue prides itself on its precise culinary creations that delight regulars with well-crafted dishes using fine products. The service is attentive, ensuring a comfortable experience without any discomfort. Le Benaton presents two notable set menus alongside a tempting a la carte selection that pays tribute to the historic culinary contributions of Bruno Monnoir. Among the highlights are the confit Jura trout with a carrot variation and the pigeon ratatouille. The establishment boasts a well-organized cellar that showcases an extensive range of Burgundy wines, from Chablis to Givry. The restaurant's commitment to quality is evident in its thoughtful dish composition, such as the roasted calf's head with langoustine and the frothy mousse of turbot and foie gras. Guests can expect courteous service, a welcoming atmosphere, and delightful touches like pretty flowers on the tables. In addition to the exceptional food and wine, Le Benaton's location in a town celebrated for its prestigious annual wine auctions and the iconic Hospices with their glazed tile roofs adds to its allure. Chef Keishi Sugimura, a fervent advocate of refined French cuisine and wines, finds perfect harmony in this setting. His training in Japan and expertise in crafting fine seasonal ingredients into classical recipes with occasional bursts of creativity, such as the œuf parfait with dashi stock and Japanese wagyu or the Corton pigeon served two ways, have earned him acclaim. The chef's wife, also a culinary talent, ensures that guests feel pampered, especially those who choose to dine on the patio in the garden during the summertime.
