With so many Chowhounds going to France, it just proves that good food conquers politics!
I will be in Avignon June 28-July 25. I've heard about Christian Etienne, but I'm wondering if there are some other specialities or restaurants I should keep in mind. I will be able to travel on the weekends, so suggest away!
(ps- I am pretty familiar with southern France in general. I would really like to take this opportunity to explore 'off the beaten path')
