Radisson Blu Hotel, Nice welcomes Chef Julia Sedefdjian to Calade this summer Radisson Hotel Group

Brussels/Nice, 2022-Jun-05 — /Travel PR News/ — Radisson Blu Hotel, Nice and Restaurant Calade’s Chef David Rodriguez are proud to welcome France’s youngest Michelin-star chef and Nice-native Julia Sedefdjian to the hotel’s panoramic rooftop for a residence this Summer to celebrate the hotel’s 25th anniversary.

Calade by Julia Sedefdjian will be open for lunch and dinner from Wednesday to Sunday, 24 June to 30 September 2022 at Radisson Blu Hotel, Nice, an iconic local address with the city’s only 700 square meter rooftop overlooking the sublime Baie des Anges. The restaurant will offer 70 seats on the terrace alongside 50 covers indoors where guests can enjoy a curated menu by Julia Sedefdjian in partnership with Chef David Rodriguez. Consisting of four starters, four main courses, and four desserts, the menu will feature regional and seasonal produce, including chard, courgette flowers, grilled sea bass, rock octopus, panisse – a well-known Nice specialty made from chickpea flour, water and olive oil – and other delicacies close to the chef’s heart. The menu will feature Calade’s creative, artfully presented, contemporary French food, which draws influence from the abundant local Nice flavors which Sedefdjian is known for, in a chic rooftop terrace setting with sea views.

“We are extremely happy and proud to welcome Chef Julia Sedefdjian to Calade this summer. Her origins in Nice and the creativity she shows in celebrating our regional produce immediately won us over. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our rooftop restaurant with its unique view of the Baie des Anges and to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our hotel.” explains Stephan Meyvisch, General Manager of Radisson Blu Hotel, Nice.

Julia Sedefdjian was awarded her first Michelin star in 2016 when she was only 21 years old, and Head Chef at Les Fables de la Fontaine in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. In 2019, Julia Sedefdjian earned a new Michelin star for her restaurant, Baieta, in the 5th arrondissement on Paris’ Left Bank. Originally from Nice, she started her apprenticeship at only 14 years old with Chef David Faure (Aphrodite) and became Head Chef at the age of 20. Her passion for Nice’s produce, her creativity, and her meticulous attention to detail in her dishes immediately captivated the attention of Chef David Rodriguez.

“Cooking in Nice in residence during summertime is a dream that I am fulfilling thanks to the Radisson Blu Hotel, Nice. This exceptional rooftop is one of the Nice addresses that I hold in high esteem and where I enjoy going when I return home. I can’t wait to showcase my vision of Nice cuisine in such a magnificent setting,” explains Julia Sedefdjian.
