Restaurant ideas in Nice area in July...
Michelin Stars in Nice (1 star)
Keisuke Matsushima (great!)
L'Univers (don't bother)
Also of note is Millésime 82.
La Petite Maison has a fantastic chicken stuffed with foie gras dish. Make a reservation well in advance.
In the old town, pick up the wonderful Nicois Socca at Lou Pilha Lehva. Street food. Stop in a boulangerie for Pissaladière, Nicois "pizza". (No tomato, but loads of caramelized onions). A full lunch street food is Pan Bagnat, a giant round tuna sandwich with loads of olive oil and veggies.
