The Riviera boasts more Michelin commendations (45 stars over 36 establishments as of 2014) than almost anywhere else on the planet. The regional capital of Nice teems with exquisite restaurants, from the high end to the downright local. Excellent eateries are scattered across the city—although beware of many of the Old Town’s careless offerings, keen to lure in tourists for a single night only. In addition to the suggestions below, the portside Le Bistrot du Port, 28 quai Lunel (www.lebistrotduportdenice.fr; tel. 04-93-55-21-70), is where the Orsini family has been dishing up top-quality fish and creative seafood concoctions for over 30 years.
