Dear Members and Guests,
Many of you may not have attended the previous parades of the Nice Carnival because of the difficulty in getting to the area of Place Masséna, extending to Jardin Albert 1er, where throngs of people jostle and stand for a view of the parade.
We have some happy news about this year’s parade. In 2020, the pandemic sadly caused the parade to be canceled. Our best laid plans fell through to view it from Le Méridien Hotel located on the corner of Promenade des Anglais and Avenue Gustave V. This year, we have secured the same venue for the parade which will pass in front of the hotel, where we will be gathered on the first floor with a view above the spectators at street level.
The Flower Parade on that day will begin at 2:30 pm. Please allow plenty of time to arrive at Le Méridien in time for our event, which will begin with a three-course lunch at 1:30 pm. The exclusive menu for our group will be served from 1:30 to 2:30 pm and we will be allowed to remain in the restaurant for the duration of the parade. You will be able to watch it from your seat and move about the room to snap pictures.
The menu will include the following choices of one from each course below.
The chef requires the tally of each selection no later than February 15th:
Crisply king prawns, rocket salad with grated parmesan cheese, Tandoori sauce
Grilled vegetables in “Terrine” with goat’s cheese, lavender vinaigrette
Seared back of salmon, Carnarolli risotto with cockles
Organic chicken breast, rosemary juice, “ratte” potato and pleurote mushrooms pot
Apple tart with cinnamon, caramel and rosemary sauce, vanilla ice cream
Chocolate and hazelnut dessert, vanilla
