The 2023 Michelin-starred restaurant Chef: Florent Pietravalle
Gourmet experience in Avignon - Provence
In the heart of Avignon, at the foot of the Popes' Palace, an intense culinary journey awaits you: beauty of the place, aesthetics, pleasures of the senses....
Florent offers an exceptional cuisine. His generosity and committed philosophy can be felt through his “Carte Blanche” 2, 3 or 4 sequences menus.
This concept gives him the opportunity to create an entirely bespoke tasting menu drawing from inspiration, seasonality and creativity based on the strong flavours of Provence.
“"We have a guideline for the tastes and seasonings. I compose the menu according to the product deliveries. Nothing is set in stone, we are not going to force nature to give what it does not have." F. P.
The producers of Provence and Avignon are privileged. The shorter the transport, the later the sun-drenched local fruit and vegetables can be picked, the fresher the fish... This is the philosophy of the restaurant’s team that contributed to receiving the Green Star distinction from the Michelin Guide 2021, which promotes establishments that are particularly committed to a sustainable approach to gastronomy: respect for the land, the seasons, the animals, and a commitment to better food.
“We are grateful to all the producers who accompany us on a daily basis in this path of sustainable development. This distinction comes on top of our first star in the Michelin Guide 2019 for the gourmet restaurant.”
The gourmet restaurant is an entity in its own right. At Hotel La Mirande, the days follow a rhythm marked by genuine gastronomical moments, in which all the arts come together and nothing is left to chance. The table is a décor where the materials and the objects join with the forms and the colours of the food you are invited to taste: pleasure of the eye as an introduction to the pleasure of the palate! It is as if the products of nature had been observed and admired in their simplicity before becoming part of a recipe, however sophisticated and lovingly concocted, so as to preserve their integrity. And one of the greatest paradoxes is just how much energy is required to achieve such a light touch!
