A restaurant in nearby Menton has been named the fourth best restaurant in the world by the UK-based “Restaurant” magazine.
The two Michelin-star Mirazur, under chef Mauro Colagreco, beat all other French eateries to take its prestigious place in the international world of fine dining. The restaurant has slowly climbed the ranks in recent years, coming 11th in 2014 and 2015, and sixth last year. Mirazur has been in the top 50 for nine years.
“It’s a lot of emotion to be in the top five restaurants in the world,” Mauro Colagreco told local French newspaper Nice Matin, “because of the daily work and the desire to constantly improve.”
To add insult to injury for other very competitive chefs in France, Mauro Colagreco is Italian-Argentinean. (Feature photo: Facebook Restaurant Mirazur)
