WHEN IN NICE
The original home of legendary restaurant La Petite Maison, Nice has long been a center for culinary innovation.
Trendy Mediterranean restaurants abound in this most gracious of French seaside destinations, and one of the best is La Langouste, located in the prestigious Musiciens neighborhood. La Langouste offers a seasonally changing menu, featuring dishes made exclusively with local ingredients. Starters include a gazpacho with black olives, a ceviche of prawn and sea bass with avocado puree and a mi-cuit foie gras with ginger, rhubarb and brioche. As a main dish, opt for the lobster tortellini served in a lobster bisque or the mixed Mediterranean fish in a bouillabaisse sauce. In summer, you can dine alfresco, in the lush patio, which feels a bit like your very own secluded paradise.
