Jan Restaurant, Nice
Modern French food with a touch of South African heritage. From childhood Jan used to spend most of his time in the garden and kitchen and has replaced this with the markets of France. With his new restaurant in the old Port of Nice he is not only out to set the trends but to combine local with a stylish and attentive atmosphere.
Relaxed lunches with whatever is found at the market ends up on the menu with interesting daily changing fresh pressed juices like spicy carrot and golden beet to rhubarb and ginger with orange and apricot and rose.
Dinners are a slightly more formal affair with elegant white table cloths and soft vocal jazz in the background. Degustation menu can be broken down to your liking or enjoyed as a journey of culinary creativity. Local dishes with a new interpretation like lobster and algae tartare with shellfish consommé, Socca sandwich with smoked mozzarella or home-made ravioli served with a scoop of creamy powerful eppoisse finished off with leek ashes, to a delicious pumpkin and chocolate tart with cognac and popcorn ice-cream.
A fine partnership between “happening” and classic.
Open for dinner Tuesday to Saturday 19:00-22:00, and for lunch Friday and Saturday between 12:00-14:00.
