Concierge.com's insider take:
Ambitious, media-savvy chef Christophe Leroy is St. Tropez's culinary mascot, and he knows his clientele right down to their artfully painted toenails. Leroy's fans want a sexy, romantic setting with great lighting, a low-key lounge sound track, a smattering of famous faces, smiling service from cute waiters and waitresses, and tasty but uncomplicated food—all served under the stars in Ramatuelle. Leroy changes his prix-fixe menu regularly but usually includes vichysoisse with truffles, pasta with clams and mussels in a basil-garlic sauce, lobster salad with ginger, and veal chop with chanterelles. The regulars wash it down with a locally produced Château Minuty rosé and finish things up with the chilled peach salad spiked with lavender flowers.
