Two-Course Meal Deal

The Châteaux & Hotels Collection (formerly known as Châteaux & Hotels de France) is a group of 500 or so privately owned, one-of-a-kind restaurants and hotels throughout France. Ten years ago, chef Alain Ducasse took over the group’s management, upgrading its standards and burnishing its image. Today, the group represents some of the country’s finest restaurants and hotels, all of them independently owned, all devoted to using the best local and regional products. And now the group has launched its second annual lunch promotion, called La France Re[cuisinée]. I have no idea what that means, actually, or why they put brackets in there...and neither do my French friends. But who cares? Until May 15th, close to 100 CHC members are offering a two-course lunch, Monday to Friday, for 28€. Choose a starter and main course or a main and dessert; most likely it will be a set menu. The list of participating restaurants includes some of Provence’s top spots: Au Table du Sud (Marseille), Le Saule Pleureur (Monteux), La Bastide de Moustiers (Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, pictured above), Hostellerie Berard (La Cadiere-d’Azur), Hotel Vallon de Valrugues (St. Remy), the Hotel l’Abbaye de la Celle (La Celle en Provence), La Maison Jaune (St. Remy), the Auberge de Noves (Noves) and the Mas de Peint (Le Sambuc).
