What they say about Chef Diot's creativity
"Barons of Bistros" House and Garden Magazine
“Jean-Michel Diot has a masterful sense of balance with aromatic ingredients of Provence,” says Bryan Miller, New York Times.
Lauren Duffy of San Diego Restaurants quotes, “If there is a formula for the ideal restaurant experience—one where every need is met, every sense delighted, every dish inspired, and all of this without pretense—Tapenade Chef and Owner Jean-Michel Diot must have discovered it.”
