Chef Christian Delouvrier continues to elevate the cuisine by applying his own flair to classic French country cooking, his signature Poulet Fermier Rôti or roasted chicken, is crisped to perfection on the skin but tender and juicy on the inside; seafood dishes includes the roasted wild bass fillet in black truffle broth & chanterelles mushrooms or the house “Mouclade” – mussels with white wine broth, shallots, crème fraîche & thyme. La Mangeoire also boast a notable selection of wines, curated by the owner, Gerard Donato and features a mix of reasonably priced "French country" wines from Provence and Gascony as well as those from more famous regions like Bordeaux and the Rhone and a few from California and Italy.
