Gerald Passédat comes from old restaurateurs family in Marseille. His 3 Michelin starred restaurant Le Petit Nice Passédat has been frequented by seafood fanatics for decades and has become a symbol of high end Marseillaise cuisine. Of course, there you will find the famous bouillabaisse, fish stew once eaten by poor fishermen, but what I like most at Le Petit Nice Passédat is the variety of Mediterranean fish used and the exquisite way it is prepared. I haven’t had such wonderful bonito sashimi since the last time I visited Japan.   The sea bass cooked according to Gerald’s grandmother Lucie recipe was delicate and juicy, so as the sea bream with fennel juice and tarragon.

    Love his bouillabaisse, oldie but goodie! There wasn’t enough light to take amazing photos like yours.. and we sat outside on the terrace by the sea. Sounds like an amazing experience!!
