Maki Nova

Japanese in Le Puy-en-Velay

This self-styled ‘AuvergnAponais’ restaurant (Auvergnat meets ‘Japonais’) places an emphasis on organic and local ingredients wherever possible, while neon lighting and ice-cold cocktails bestow an upmarket, trendy vibe. Arranged on slate platters, sushi arrives garnished with seasonal flowers, often with the rice stained beetroot-pink.

If you’re feeling flush, with 48 hours’ notice you can enjoy a personalised feast, with lobster and caviar sushi tailored to your taste (up to €60).
