"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.

"We enjoyed a lovely, delicious New Year's eve dinner here, with lots of choices from the $45 prix fixe menu. The onion and fish soup appetizers were appropriately hot, the cheese just right in the onion soup and the fish fresh and plentiful in the fish stew. My rack of limb was cooked medium rare, just as requested and my husband's branzino was original and just all-around excellent.
The noise level here is alway too high, but it quieted down after awhile (this is the restaurant's main draw back for me), the service was cheerful and attentive, despite a packed house, and the wine steward was excellent, confirming our choice of a reasonably-priced, spot on wine when he could have recommended a much pricier bottle.
The decor is getting a little tired and as always, the tables are too close together which contributes to the high noise level.
Not a bad way at all to dine on New Year's eve.
