As the Hotel Negresco finds itself in a transition period after its head chef left, Flaveur is Nice’s must-eat. As of 2018, this restaurant can now boast of having two Michelin stars. Brothers Mickaël and Gaël Tourteaux (whose last name, almost unbelievably, translates as “cake”) are a pair of very talented chefs. They may be relatively young—late 30s and early 40s respectively—yet they’ve already spent decades in the kitchens of the Riviera’s top restaurants. A childhood growing up on the tropical islands of Réunion and Guadeloupe means their modern Michelin-starred cuisine is laced with exotic flavors: Plump scallops seasoned with Japanese gomasio; artistically displayed lemongrass and bubbles of lemon caviar sit atop risotto. Meals are variations on fixed-price menus only; there’s no ordering à la carte, although lunchtime menus allow for gourmet bites on a relative budget.
