Please advise of good restaurants and other food/wine spots along the Burgundy Canal, particularly between Dijon and Pouilly-en-Auxois. Also, good places in and between Dijon and Beaune. Will be there in May and can't wait! Thanks for the suggestions fellow chowhounders.

  1. This is off canal but should you find yourself near the Yonne, be sure to eat at Cote St. Jacques in Joigny. It may be a 2 star but they try harder.

      mc michael, Thanks very much for your message.

    2. Here's a link to a great post from David Russell on his favorites in the region. I've had lunch in the last year at Aux Vendages de Bourgogne and can echo his enthusiastic recommendation.

          Here's a link my own post, but since the experience was two years ago, it may be a bit dated. That trip also included a dinner at Aux Vendages de Bourgogne, Les Millesimes and another place in G-C in the center that I can't remember the name of. I liked all three very much. The 4-hour lunch at Millesimes was especially memorable - you must order the appetizer of escargot with roasted shallots.

          For the 2001 trip, we only had time for one lunch in Burgundy and I was happy to return to Aux Vendages. If Ma Cuisine had been open that day, I might have gone there instead. I also noted that Le Petit Caveau was closed with a sign that it would soon reopen under new ownership. Things may have changed there.

            Melanie,
            Thanks so much for your post. I really appreciate it. I wonder why no one has answered my question about ducasse, any ideas?
            Thanks again,
            Michael
