IT'S FOOD AND DRINK FRIDAYYYY! My younger cousin was in Nice this past week, which had me reminiscing about one of my favorite meals there.
La Merenda is a cozy restaurant, serving up local French cuisine. The chef handwrites the ever changing menu on a chalkboard daily. The servers take turns passing the board around the tables. The menu features dishes created out of fresh market finds from that morning.
I had oxtail with orange sauce, lentils and sausage, the beef stew (I never forget a meal😉)
and the most AMAZING wine! The wine was so incredible, I spent the next day scouring the city for a bottle, which I found!!!
... and then accidentally dropped at the bus stop, where I was forced to watch in horror, as the best thing that ever happened to me, shattered right before my eyes.
Hopefully, you are not as clumsy as me and managed to hang on to your favorite beverage.
