There are still many other specialties: chard pie, pistou soup, rabbit à la niçoise, daube, etc.
The traditional cuisine
Here, cuisine has such a personality, that it has been able to obtain a label: cuisine nissarde, the respect of tradition.
Not all restaurants offering real local cuisine are approved cuisine nissarde. So you can taste this traditional cuisine in many restaurants, those approved are less numerous. See our links below.
I invite you to read our pages on restaurants in Nice, some of which are classified as traditional cuisine and some as strict cuisine nissarde.
