For more than 100 years, L’Amiral Restaurant, overlooking the port of Concarneau with outdoor seating in its cafe, has been showcasing a traditional menu of seafood and French specialties.  The day we visited they were featuring a lobster menu with homard bleu (the local blue lobsters).  Of course, we had to try it!  We also ordered one meal a la carte.  As the photographs show, our luncheon was full of elegantly prepared and delicious dishes, centered on local ingredients with modern interpretations of traditional preparations.
