Ever more locavore
Nestled in a bucolic natural setting between the village of Bormes-les-Mimosas and the Mediterranean, Le Zèbre Vert is a restaurant in the image of its co-founders, Thierry and Sarah—that is, committed and carefree with a taste for plant-forward cooking. “In English, ‘zèbre vert’ translates to ‘green zebra,’ which just so happens to be the name of a delicious variety of tomato grown here in Provence,” says Thierry. The name reveals the locavore values of its founders. “We are fortunate to live in an area with such a rich food culture: organic beekeepers, free-range chicken farmers, craft brewers, and vineyards with a ‘high environmental value’ rating.” The couple has opted for a green energy provider, and they prefer to avoid popular brand names in favor of local producers, most of whom they knew personally. The restaurant’s menu is short, seasonal, and constantly evolving, featuring plant-forward dishes and several mussel recipes inspired by Thierry’s Belgian roots.
