Niçoise Cuisine – A label for restaurants
Nice is a tourist town known for its architecture, beaches, lifestyle, but also for its food. During your stay at the Best Western Hotel New York Nice, you may have the opportunity to taste some specialties from Nice and to discover this delicious and sunny Mediterranean food.
Niçoise cuisine is marked by the unique climate of the region, with an ideal sunlight, between the sea and the mountains. Sunny vegetables, aromatic herbs and olive oil are the key ingredients of many authentic recipes of Niçoise cooking.
This cuisine is essentially linked to seasons and celebrations. In summer, people enjoy Niçoise salads, pan bagnats, ratatouille or stuffed vegetables of Nice (“farcis niçois”), while in winter, meat stews, Niçois ravioli, gnocchi and soups predominate in the plates.
Among the most renowned specialties of Nice, don’t miss the chance to taste pissaladière, an onion pie with some anchovies, vegetable fritters, Swiss chard pie (“tourte de blette”) or Socca, a kind of crepe made up of water, chickpea flour and olive oil.
To help people from Nice and tourists to find the best addresses of specialty restaurants, a “Cuisine Nissarde” label has been created and awarded to restaurateurs who work for the promotion of Niçoise cooking in their establishments.
Every year, the list of restaurants with the label “Cuisine Nissarde” is updated – don’t hesitate to ask the names of these restaurants at the reception.
