Nice Matin is a French spot with solid options for brunch, lunch, and dinner. We like it best on Friday nights, when they serve a special bouillabaisse (seafood soup). They also have a substantial gluten-free menu. The food isn’t cheap and the wine list is impressive, so head here for a special occasion.
