It is said that Alexander Dumas, in the Nantes region came to an adulterous dalliance on the edge of the Sevre, was struck by inspiration in a corner of a restaurant in Vertou (Loire Atlantique), and would have written the first sentences of a new novel "The Count of Monte Cristo": "On February 24, 1815, the vigil of Notre-Dame de la Garde signaled the three-master the Pharaon, coming from Smyrna, Trieste and Naples ..." It does not take more on that in other times the gastronomic establishment is named Monte Cristo. Today, the restaurant Monte Cristo directed by Jean-Luc and Nathalie Senee pays tribute to regional cuisine with local specialties, while daring a more daring kitchen without serving a culinary acquired from great leaders, including Parisians. The gastronomic talent of Jean-Luc Senee be enjoyed at the restaurant in a clear and warm setting, or at home, thanks to the card takeaways. Formulas, menus, takeaway: Products are biased to local producers (growers, winemakers, marayeurs, etc.) Moreover, Monte Cristo is gourmet food at reasonable prices. The pleasure of a good affordable restaurant also feeds the imagination.
