Restaurant Mirazur has been awarded a third Michelin star in the 2019 edition of the prestigious Michelin Guide France at today’s launch ceremony in Paris.
Chef patron Mauro Colagreco opened Mirazur in 2006 and in less than a year, awarded its first star by Michelin. Since then, the restaurant and Mauro have gone on to achieve huge international critical acclaim and numerous national awards, a second Michelin star in 2012 and “Chevalier De L’Ordre National du Mérite” (one of the highest civilian honours accorded by the French Republic).
Mauro’s cuisine reflects the unique location of his restaurant – on the French/Italian border overlooking Menton on the stunning Côte D’Azur. Surrounded by the mountain region of the Alpes Maritimes behind; the abundance from the sea in front; and the vegetables, herbs and fruit from the restaurant’s own sun-drenched gardens, as well as the daily markets in Menton and Ventimiglia.
In this region of shifting territories, overlapping maps and blurred boundaries, Mirazur offers a cuisine without frontiers, inspired by products and people.
Commenting Mauro said, “How can I begin to express such overwhelming emotion and gratitude! Gratitude firstly towards my team for their dedication over the years; gratitude towards my family, for their sacrifice and support; gratitude towards our loyal guests for their continued support; gratitude towards our local purveyors providing us with the best products of the region; gratitude towards Michelin and their guide for recognising our work from the beginning; and finally gratitude towards France – a country where I chose to express myself, that adopted me, transmitting its values of “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity”.
