"Nice Matin, named after the largest daily newspaper in the South of France, gives the Upper West Side a splash of Provençal sunshine and a heady introduction to the cuisine of Nice, home of the pissaladière, pan bagnat and, if we are to believe the menu, a whopping big burger topped with comté cheese, smeared with aioli and served with a heap of rosemary-flecked fries. It's the best thing to happen to a hamburger since Daniel Boulud worked foie gras and short ribs into an all-beef patty. The pleasure is all on the plate, and it carries right through to the desserts.", William Grimes - NY Times.

"This place is a jewel on Staten Island. The service was outstanding - Bennett was solicitous but not on top of us. The food was outstanding. The specials (linguine with clams and halibut) were done perfectly, but the Cavatelli alla Carbonara was wonderful. Not too creamy and just the right flavor of egg, it was both delicate and filling. Once you are done with dinner, though, the real treats arrive. Desserts are freshly made in Pasticceria Bruno and the selection Bennett provided finished our dinner beautifully. The next time I go, I want to try the pizzas and the simpler fare, and then come home with some bread. I would travel to Staten Island just to go back to this place."
