You can easily find classic French cuisine yourself — all you have to do is ask a neighbor or the owner of your rented apartment. However, the spot to enjoy a fresh lobster will only be shared with you in confidence.
Here's how to find it: turn from the Promenade des Anglais behind the garden of Albert, walk along the right side of Alevi street and look out for a sign with a lobster. The sun-lit cafe in blue and beige colors with large windows is your destination and probably one of the best gastronomic locations in Nice.
Tender lobster meat met a soft French baguette a couple of years ago when Fabien Bonno had the idea to bring the traditional American dish to Cote d'Azur. The French lobster roll and other items on the menu were developed by chef Arnaud Cardinals. In addition to the original sandwich (lobster, baguette, salad and some spices), you will find variations with tarragon sauce, aioli or melted Norman cheese. The novelty of the 2019 season is “Lobster Roll with Truffles,” which is a triumph of hedonism. If you want light dinner, order a salad with or without a lobster.
Average bill: 18-22 euros
