La Pêche à la Vigne

Restaurant La Pêche à la Vigne in NiceLa Pêche à la Vigne (Nice) - © La Pêche à la Vigne

Located along the harbor in Nice, La Pêche à la Vigne is a small old-fashioned cave à manger complete with glass jars, beautiful woodwork and grandmotherly tableware. It’s also where Brice Fortunato, the former chef at La Mise au Verre, has decided to serve his excellent preserves that he prepares in-house, alongside local meats, freshly caught fish and produce from the farmer’s market. The day we went (served there or to go): a beautiful chicken, sunchoke and hazelnut terrine, with pickled cauliflower and fermented beets and black radishes (€7.50 and €5); a majestic artichoke, avocado and black radish salad, as the only dish of the day (€14); and an impressive freshly made sandwich with the boss’s terrine, fermented vegetables and a delicious homemade béarnaise sauce (€6.50). Lots of good reasons to sample the natural wines (Beaujolais from Julien Merle, Syrah from Matthieu Dumarcher…), craft beers, or even a gin and tonic with nasturtium root (€8.50 a glass)! FYI: Saturdays, at 11am, the freshly caught Monaco oysters are served with Etienne Fort bubbly (€16.50 a bottle). Wines €18-22.50), beers (€4-6). // Laëtitia Sayre
