Wow ! That's pretty much the first thing that comes to mind to sum up the experience we had for our lunch at the restaurant AM by Alexandre Mazzia on Tuesday August 22nd 2017.
Even though we had to make a big detour just to get there due to the filming of Luc Besson's Taxi's fifth instalment which had closed all traffic on one of Marseille's busiest avenues (avenue du Prado) and the crew trucks parked on the very street of the restaurant, it was so worth it.
We were welcomed by a very nice team – though we were half an hour late -- and after ordering our drinks and opting for the 52 euros carte blanche menu, they brought us a series of extraordinary amuse-bouche. It was like an art exhibition on a plate : colorful, beautiful and most importantly highly tasteful. The rest of our meal all the way to the mignardises was incredibly imaginative, creative, attractive, perfectly cooked and well thought through.
Alexandre Mazzia created his menu like an architect and a painter : every dish a work of art, all of them full of flavors, and for some you could even feel an explosion of spices and herbs on your palate.
The service was extremely professional, nice and smooth with a couple dishes directly served by a member of the kitchen staff.
We did not drink wine for our lunch on that day so we did not look at the wine list.
The restaurant is modern and arty, with a touch of zen.
It was a truly great experience to discover Alexandre Mazzia's cooking. We had the chance to speak to him and learned that he is good friend with David Toutain, another great talent and great cook.
Keep it up, guys !
