I'm a longtime lurker, first time poster. I could really use some of your expertise.
My girlfriend and I are travelling to Nice and a few of the surrounding towns next month (February). It's *very* off-season, but that's one of the reasons we wanted to do it. If anyone has any specific recommendations of restaurants in Nice, Menton, Antibes, Cannes, Monte-Carlo, or any other small towns worth stopping in, it would be much appreciated.
Also, my girlfriend is a vegetarian, and any suggestions for her so she doesn't have to subsist solely on bread and cheese would be great (though she does love bread and cheese . . .).
Finally, if anyone knows anything about what to expect at Nice's Carnaval or Menton's Lemon Festival, I would love to hear about it.
