Le Riche, a traditional restaurant in Alès that has been serving happy customers for nearly seventy years, is now under the management of Sébastien Rath. This young chef has revamped the old-style décor and given it a contemporary feel. The atmosphere and quality of the cuisine, well-loved over generations, remain unchanged. And Rath has a surprise in store for clients:
“We have renovated the premises to create an entirely open kitchen where clients can watch their meals being made, and see the care we take in all our preparation.”
And of course, Sébastien will be able to see how clients respond to his creations.
“In our kitchens, the terroir, the sun of the Cévennes are palpable … even if, sometimes, the mild onions that grow here bring tears to our eyes.”
The region around Alès, described by Robert Louis Stevenson in his Travels With a Donkey in the Cevennes, now shows a new gastronomic facet to visitors looking for a gourmet experience.
