Les Arcades
L’HOSPITALITÉ DE LA FAMILLE BROTHIER

On adore le restaurant-hôtel-galerie d’art de la famille Brothier, créé en 1952 par Dédé et sa femme Mimi. À 83 ans, elle est toujours en cuisine pour veiller au grain et découper les petits artichauts violets de sa délicieuse salade à la crème d’estragon. Les plats qu’elle crée sont une ode à la Provence et au pays niçois : soupe au pistou, raviolis « tous nus », fleurs de courgettes farcies, caillette, lapin aux olives, sardines panées… et la véritable salade niçoise. Côté dessert, les figues au vin cuit et à la cannelle sont divines. En salle, ses fils Jean-Marc et Jean-François avec sa femme Catherine entretiennent l’ambiance familiale dans la maison de village du XVe siècle en abreuvant les clients de souvenirs. C’est ici que Picasso, Chagall, Yves Montand ou Fernand Léger sont venus goûter à l’hospitalité de Dédé. Devenu collectionneur des œuvres de ses amis artistes (Vasarely, Léger, Hans Hedberg, Braque, César, Sagasta…), Dédé les expose aujourd’hui au sous-sol. C’est dans la chambre 9 de ce petit hôtel de 12 chambres, qu’Arthur London écrivit son «Aveu » et que « Lolita » fut traduite en français par Éric Kadrane.

THE ARTISTIC HOSPITALITY OF THE BROTHIER FAMILY

We love the Brothier family restaurant-hotel-art gallery founded in 1952 by Dédé and his wife Mimi. At 83, she is still in the kitchen to keep an eye on things and cut up the little violet artichokes for her delicious salad with creamed tarragon. The dishes she creates are an ode to Provence and Nice: soupe au pistou, “plain” raviolis, stuffed courgette flowers, small Provençal pâtés, rabbit with olives, breaded sardines… and the real salade Niçoise. For desserts, the figs in cooked wine and cinnamon are divine. In the dining room of the 15th century family house, her sons Jean-Marc and Jean-François with his wife
Catherine perpetuate the family atmosphere with stories of the past when Picasso, Chagall, Yves Montand and Fernand Léger came to taste Dédé’s hospitality. Having become a collector of his artist friends’ works (Vasarely, Léger, Hans Hedberg, Braque, César, Sagasta…), today Dédé exhibits them in the basement. It was in room 9 of this small hotel totalling 12 rooms that Arthur London wrote his “Aveu” and Lolita was translated into French by Eric Kadrane.
