Best restaurants? Mirazur!

You already know by now we love to travel. And that we love food!

Having talked about The World’s 50 best restaurants list before, today we chose another one, this time in France: Mirazur, number 4 on 2017 list!

What makes it special: In a stunning location on the French side of the Riviera, just moments from the Italian border, Mirazur is an idyllic spot to enjoy the food of the skilled chef Mauro Colagreco, which takes inspiration from his Argentine-Italian heritage as well as the local French region.

About the chef: Mauro Colagreco headed to France in 2001 as a newly qualified chef, working with Bernard Loiseau until his death in 2003. He then worked with 50 Best regulars Alain Passard at Arpège and Alain Ducasse at Hotel Plaza Athénée before spending a year at Le Grand Véfour.

Colagreco established Mirazur in Menton in 2006. Just six months after opening Colagreco received the ‘Revelation of the Year’ award, a brand new category to recognize his merits, from Gault&Millau, and in less than a year, he earned his first Michelin star. The second in 2012.

Mirazur became officially one of the best restaurants in the world listed in The S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants. In the same year, Colagreco was also awarded “Chef of the Year” by the prestigious Gault & Millau restaurant guide – the first non-French chef ever to receive this title.

What’s on the menu: With ingredients coming from Colagreco’s own backyard farm and the market of Ventimiglia, diners can expect a feast of flavoursome products from just-picked heirloom vegetables to sparklingly fresh seafood. Courses might include monkfish with topinambur puree and Piedmont hazelnuts, or anchovy fillets on fried anchovy skeletons with juice from Menton’s famous lemons. Colagreco’s signature of oyster with tapioca, shallot cream and pear is a modern classic in the making.

An inspirational dish!
