Restaurant Hibiscus announces it's opening in the bastide town of Domme in the Dordogne region of southwest France. Nestled behind stone walls in a private compound that was formerly a stable and blacksmith's shop, Hibiscus offers a menu of small dishes inspired by Spanish Creole and Asian flavours, a carefully selected wine list drawing on Latin America, Bordeaux, and Spain, and an expansive stone-lined terrace for dining and relaxing.
A small bar occupies the former blacksmith shanty, which still has the original fireplace fashioned into the wall. A courtyard offers a hand-carved stone fountain.
The previously abandoned space in this renowned village has been totally renovated. Restaurant guests have views of one of Domme's main gates, the Porte del Bos, and the village's medieval-era ramparts. Domme has been named among France's most beautiful villages by The Guardian and The Telegraph.
Hibiscus offers the only place in Domme to simply enjoy a glass of wine or beer with or without food. The inaugural wine list has 35 selections, including 15 by the glass. There are options from Chateau Smith-Haute-Lafitte in Bordeaux to L.A. Cetto Zinfandel from Mexico.
