    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.

      Millésime 82 was sold in January and has recently reopened as Les Deux Canailles. The new team came from Keisuke Matsushima, as the team at Flaveur did before, so I have high hopes for it, but will not be back in Nice until Easter so haven't tried it yet.

        BTW Beaulieu-- when did Maeterlinck close? Seemed like a fabulous spot. Similar story to Metropole?
