Another trip I did this summer was a week in Nice whith my friend. I had not been on a girl’s trip in such a long time, so it was really cool ! I used this opportunity to plan a couple of restaurants for content creation (read my article on 4 rules to apply for a peaceful work trip with family and friends as a travel foodie blogger). As a result, just like I did for Berlin, check out my article 3 trendly restaurants to try for a perfect foodie day in Berlin) here is my perfect foodie day in Nice :
1. Start the day with a Brunch at Café Brindille
Loacted in rather posh area, this coffee shop stands out with its dried flowers bouquets. Yes, I should mention this coffee shop can be assimilated to a concept store as they are restaurant and a flower shop at hte same time !
What got to me aside the fact that I discovered the famous soka, local fried chickpeas paste (they presented it in sticks, it was crunchy outside and moist inside, same texture as a polenta, simply delicious) and the excellent service, was the dried flowers. See, not only is it unusual, but I have the exact same thing at home, so it felt like a shop that was specially made for me ! I highly recommend this place, it’s a shame the portions were so generous that I had no more space for dessert, this means I will probably go back !
2. Relax at Cocoon Beach
This place is the most attractive and comfortable beach lounge i have seen in Nice. We didn’t want to leave ! Even though the menu is pretty classic, they got me with the lemon mousse dessert that had texture of an iced Italian meringue with lemon flavour, simply divine. This dessert was recommended by the waitress that was attending us, I simply love when they give good advice, so she nailed it ! The vanilla ice-cream in half a melon was also very refreshing !
3. End the night with a fancy dinner at Pure & V
Not only did I see on most website that this restaurant was a must try, but I follow an influencer who had also been there a month before and was mind blown by her experience so I had to try it out. This restaurant is owned by a female Sommelier who just earned a Michelin star ! Girl power represent ! As she is a sommelier, the tasting menu went with a wine pairing of course ! I was going to a fancy restaurant alone for the first time, I wasn’t sure if I could be able to dring 6 glasses of wine so I just asked the owner to serve me a couple of classes that would best match the dishes.
Booking the restaurant online was a hustle so I went the classic way, I called ! When it comes to the food, I enjoyed the mix of flavours textures and techniques ! My favourite dishes were the lobster ravioli (I challenge you to show me a bigger version of this dish). I also enjoyed the aged beef tartare, very very nice !
Regardless of where you decide to go, one thing is for sure, you will not leave a place hungry ! Even in fancy places portions are very generous ! I was not able to do the classic entrée plat dessert that I usually go for ! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did !
