Babel Babel

Restaurant Babel Babel in NiceBabel Babel (Nice)

Insane views, rough walls, powdered velvet chairs, a long pleated wood bar… Located directly across from the sea, this fisherman’s house now acts as a low tower where chatty diners feast and linger until late in the night. From inside their Babel Babel, Olivier Daniel and Kevin Lalanne (ex-El Merkado) send out badass, mouthwatering tapas: crispy yet tender fried polenta with a tomato dip; sweet roasted eggplant with tahini and an œuf parfait; tender and well-seasoned lamb kefta; or even some incredible tuna belly from Antibes. It’s all served with warm homemade pita bread, and a very chic seasonal fruit and labneh pavlova for dessert. Yum! // Elena di Benedetto

FEELING THIRSTY? There are some lunar cocktails made by Olivier, including a surprising Vesper-migiano (gin, vodka, Cocchi Americano and Parmesan – €12) or a gentler Sgroppino Bellini (vodka, prosecco, peach sorbet – €10), along with a selection of natural wines: a red from Progetto Calcarius in Puglia (€5.30 a glass) or a Luberon from Valentin Létoquart (€27 a bottle).

PRICE: Plates from €4.50 to €13.
