Le Cheval Blanc reopened last year as a restaurant only , having closed as a hotel a couple of years earlier. We had missed it on recent visits to the champagne region - which is not as gastronomically well-served as you might expect. Sunday lunch was delicious from start to finish with the most delectable Parmesan tarts and cheese and tomato puff pastry quills as amuse-bouches on arrival. It's also exceptionally good value at 29 euro for the three course lunch. We started with asparagus fuellite which came with smoked salmon on the forced asparagus and a yummy sauce. My husband's main course braised beef was dark and rich and astonishingly tender. I ate a fair bit of it as my chicken had arrived adorned with inexplicable layers of shrimp (last major seafood meal saw me in hospital for a couple of days- so that wasn't on) still, the maître d' was most understanding and I had scarcely polished off a significant proportion of hubby's beef before the chicken in estragon sauce with delicious rice arrived. Had to share it a bit of course - though eventually had to fight husband off. We amicably shared crepes Suzette and a sable with rhubarb and
strawberries however. Good coffee too. A grand lunch in the French style.
