Perched on the hillside of the Franco-Italian border overlooking the glittering Mediterranean sea and the Côte d’Azur is Mirazur, a three-Michelin starred restaurant headed by the charismatic chef Mauro Colagreco. Colagreco left his native Argentina in 2001 to work under the notable Bernard Loiseau, Alain Passard and Alain Ducasse before opening his restaurant in Menton in 2006.
The menu at Mirazur was entirely dependent on the fresh local produce available on the given day. Other than for allergies and dislikes, the kitchen had full control over the menu and all we could do was wait eagerly at our table as each course was brought out.
You don’t go to a fine restaurant to pig out. You go to experience new flavors and savor good food. Portions are small because it’s part of a 7 or 10 courses meal.
The Chinese call that Dim sum and it still doesn't cost an arm and a leg to fill your belly.
Better than this
I'm sorry, but not much of this looks appetizing at all. But, I'm a peasant.
