Restaurant Pourquoi Pas

Pourquoi Pas, the Castelbrac restaurant, located in front of Saint Malo with a breathtaking view on the bay.
The Chef Julien Hennote is native from this region, suggested for the restaurant “ Pourquoi Pas” a local and simple cuisine with marine spirit.
Aged 33, born in Dinan, Julien Hennote has lived the adventure right from the start aboard the Castelbrac.
In his more distant memories, he always had the desire to cook. A classical pathway in excellent houses, then two years in Polynesia. He came back home right on time to get involved passionately in "Pourquoi Pas".
The philosophy of his cuisine is joining the spirit of the Castelbrac placed in one word " Simplicity" but the requirement is the excellency of “products quality" and "local food networks".
"What is important to me, is the taste," said Julien Hennote, because this requirement is the right vector to flavors.

Concerned about highlighting the terroir and the high quality of local products in a sustainable approach, Chef Hennote decided to choose the best producers of the region, such as the butcher offering a variety of farm calf known as " Bretanin ", raised to whole milk.
However, most of his cuisine is coming directly from the ocean: "we almost have our feet in the water, we will focus on seafood".
Chef Julien Hennote and his team propose a menu adapted to the different places of Castelbrac.
The limited menu is synonymous of preserved freshness. Its content is renewed through the seasons and revisited according to the products available.
Three starters, three fish dishes and two meat dishes. The combinations are multiple and special and treat your taste bud.
The desserts are ending the meal very gently and are created by our young pastry chef.
The restaurant "Pourquoi Pas" has an elaborated cuisine based on local high quality products. A special menu "Lord Hamilton" is changing every two weeks and a menu all about Lobster.
