About the restaurant

L’ORIGINE – Le restaurant Initial est né d'une collaboration entre Yohann, le chef et Yvan, le sommelier. Son nom fait écho à leurs initiales communes. Ils se sont rencontrés dans un restaurant réputé de Basse-Normandie, il y a quelques années.

L’ESPRIT GASTRONOMIQUE – Yohann élabore ses plats à l'instinct, en fonction des produits du marché et des légumes livrés par ses amis producteurs. Le chef privilégie les cuissons simples et sublime ses plats en ajoutant une touche de condiments. Initiale Y de Yohann.

LA TABLE ET LES VINS – En salle Yvan vous conseillera en vous parlant des vins, de leur histoire et des vignerons. En accord avec les menus, il vous proposera une dégustation de vins de différentes régions de France et d'ailleurs ou vous conseillera pour un choix sur la carte. Initiale Y de Yvan.
