Iberico pork from Flaveur in Nice France

Roasted pork perfectly cooked (from the neck of the black pig) is served with potato puree and baby spinach -- the use of a vinaigrette with an excellent meat reduction works well both visually and to the taste. The dish is garnished with crispy pieces of iberico ham.

Le Safari

1 Cours Saleya This is a favorite spot of locals and tourists alike. So be prepared to wait for a table unless you reserve ahead of time. Both Le Safari restaurant and the cafe next door ---Civet are run by the same management. Safari is one of the busiest places in Nice. During the summer season it's best to come by early and reserve a table on the outside cafe. There is also a large inside dining area. The food is excellent at Safari. Try the rabbit roasted in the wood oven; an excellent (light batter) fried zuchini or any of the grilled fish dishes. Nicoise Specialties are also all excellent. Be sure the try the Petit Farcis which is a specialty of Nice consisting of vegetables that are stuffed with different fillings depending on the vegetable used e.g., eggplant, pepper, zuchini... see the petit farcis image below. And, if you are a pizza lovers try the Pizza Provencal which is grilled in a wood oven and made with french cheese, ham and a parsely sauce.

Keisuke Matsushima

22 ter rue de france 06000 Nice tel: 04 93 82 26 06. On the day we visited Keisuke Matsushima we started off with a rather extravagant amuse bouche which consisted of 5 small tastings which perfectly fit the literal translation of 'amuse bouche'. Be sure to listen to the waiters description and instructions for the dish. All three dishes on the lunch menu were excellent and found to be of Michelin quality. The croisillant of sardines was done in a style reflecting the region, served with regional vegetables and jus de minestrone. The main course was a generous cut of roasted black pig from Bigorre nicely encrusted with hazelnut and mustard and served with a puree of potatoes.Make sure to sample the rolls at Keisuke Matsushima which are baked on the premises. For dessert the fennel creme brulee was topped with a few raspberries and served with a sorbet of fromage blanc with rasberry sauce. After coffee an assortment of superb macaroons were served.
