Baieta, the new restaurant by the youngest starred chef in France

Julia Sedefdjian, 23, the youngest starred chef in France in 2016, has just opened her own restaurant called Baieta – which means little kiss in the local Niçois dialect. Julia is one impressive chef: talented, energetic, determined… all qualities found in her cooking. To join her in this new adventure, she called upon her friends Sébastien Jean-Joseph and Grégory Anelka to assist her in the kitchen and in the dining room. The restaurant’s streamlined decor of stone walls and wood tables calls to mind a workshop, while the menu is truly exciting and creative.

Sedefdjian’s light cuisine is redolent of southeastern France with her Bouillabaieta and her famous aïoli, but also other recipes from afar like the sea bream tartare with lime juice and coconut milk or the Guinea fowl supreme smoked like a West Indies boucané, all extremely delicious and aesthetically pleasing with special attention paid to plating.

The desserts, one of the chef’s specialties, are light and tasty, like the truly unique revisited lemon tart with its fennel sablé crust, the Pastis/lemon sorbet, or the Chocotube with a Tonka bean ganache, coffee biscuit and cocoa ice cream. The service is in Julia’s image: friendly, thoughtful and pleasant.

The other great surprise is the value for money: plan on €28-36 for a main dish and €60 all included for an extremely high-quality meal worthy of its first Michelin star in our opinion. As you can well imagine, Baieta is the rare gem of the moment

Noon to 2:45 pm and 7pm to 10:15pm – Closed Sunday and Monday.
