1204 which covers the history of Dijon over the centuries. A truly scrumptious tribute to glorious gallic gastronomy. Cite de la Gastronomie and du Vin How to get there: Trains from Paris to Dijon takes 1 hour 34 minutes. Where to eat: In a city in which gastronomy is revered, it’s hard to know where to go for a great meal, unless you have friends who are prepared to share their tips. I do – and now you do, beause I’m happy to tell you my favourite restaurant in Dijon. L’Essentiel is superb. Chef Richard Bernigaud creates seasonal dishes that are on another level on the tastebud scale. The portions are generous, the staff are friendly, the food is superb. I had melon gazpacho as a starter that I won’t forget in a hurry – zesty and zingy. The menu is created for the season and guaranteed to appeal to your inner glutton. L’Essentiel, 12 Rue Audra, 21000 Dijon Where to stay: Vertigo Hotel and Spa, a super designer style hotel in the heart of Dijon from where it’s a short walk to the Cité de la Gastronomie et du Vin via the gorgeous public park.
