Lonely Planet review
Babette is run by two sisters who used to produce a fashion magazine, which accounts for its effortlessly chic Fried Green Tomatoes -style interior of exposed brick walls and vintage painted signs. You're in for a feast too, as the cooking is delicious, with a sophisticated, creative French twist (think tortiglioni with courgette and pistachio pesto).
