Michelin Guide French Riviera

Well, it’s that time of year when we see the twinkling stars before our eyes…..the Michelin Guide 2013 is out, and with it,  news for several restaurants in our region.

Here on the French Riviera, the holy grail of a third star is achieved by La Vague d’Or in St Tropez. The Chef is Arnaud Donckele and at 35 years old he is the youngest chef to hold a three-star accreditation.

New to this year’s guide are restaurants at the Cap Estel in Eze, Le Relais de Moines in Les Arcs-sur-Argens, and Côté Rue in Draguignan. The last 2 will be especially popular with those seeking a true Provencal experience away from the bright lights of the French Riviera.
Sadly not all restaurants received good news with the  Bistrot de la Marine in Cagnes-sur-Mer losing its only star, and the Restaurant des Rois in Beaulieu-sur-Mer dropping from 2 stars to just one.

At Adams & Adams, we believe that every event and every menu should be special and individually tailored to suit the clients, the event, and the atmosphere that they are trying to create. Michelin 3-star dining may be exceptional, but if you’re holding a relaxed family party then maybe something less formal is called for.
