Du Gesu

Nice, january 20, 2013—

WE DINED INSIDE: this place is popular, and the large terrace was full. As you see, plenty of light nonetheless. And why choose Du Gesu? Well, on the weekends many Nice restaurants are closed, and for a popular Vielle Ville spot, it looked simple and perhaps fairly authentic 

My salade Niçoise did sport an irrelevant vertical radish holding aloft a single olive, but was otherwise perfectly acceptable, and a plate of red peppers in oil was refreshing. 

Perhaps the île flottante was a little extravagant. But it's a favorite dessert of mine, meringue in custard, reminding me always of my mother and her big Pyrex baking dish…
