Formerly a funky auberge, this unlikely address—located on a charmless highway 11 miles south of Chalon-sur-Saône—has been transformed into a destination for gastronauts from distant Dijon, Beaune, and Lyon. The dining room, done up in a smart brown and beige color scheme and starched white tablecloths, is usually filled with young, beautiful diners, but the real attraction here is in the kitchen. Chef Cédric Burtin, who did time with marquee practitioners around the country and won a Michelin star in 2008 (while still in his twenties), cooks in a highly personal yet classic style, using ingredients sourced from near and far. The vermouth-flavored veal with fennel and bacon has become a fast favorite, but also great are the house-made duck foie gras and monkfish slow-cooked in butter, seasoned and dressed with spicy chorizo sausage and paired with saffron-scented potato. The reasonably priced prix fixe menus are $40 to $80; on the wine list, look for organic Montagny Premier Cru Les Burnins, Les Coeres, and Le Vieux Château bottles from rising star winemaker Stéphane Aladame. Reserve a week in advance.—David Downie

Open Thursdays through Saturdays noon to 2 pm and 7 to 9:30 pm, Sundays noon to 2 pm, and Mondays 7 to 9:30 pm.
