[France: Menton] 3* Mirazur by Mauro Colagreco
In 2019, Mirazur was awarded 3 Michelin Stars and voted the Best Restaurant in the World by World's 50 Best Restaurants. It has the perfect trifecta of exceptional cuisine, outstanding hospitality, and beautiful location on the French Riviera overlooking the deep blue sea. Inspired by nature, the cuisine at Mirazur follows the biodynamic calendar and offers 4 variations of the tasting menu depending on the day of your visit - Roots, Leaves, Flowers or Fruits. We happened to visit on a day of flowers and our “Mirazur Flowers Universe” menu started with floral amuse bouches served picnic-style in a garden area.
Our amuse bouches:
- Meadowsweet with porcini mushrooms & parmigiano cream
- Caper’s Petals with Otoro (red tuna)
- Amaranth with lobster
- Pickled Rose Petals with smoked eel
- Chamomile with Granny Smith apple
After our picnic of amuse bouches, we headed back upstairs to the main dining room to enjoy the rest of our “Mirazur Flowers Universe” tasting menu. I was initially worried that having flowers throughout the entire meal may be too much, but every single dish was exquisite and very well-balanced. With gorgeous panoramic views of Menton and the Mediterranean Sea, the ambiance here was unparalleled and it was surely one of the most special dining experience we’ve had to date!
