He learnt the ropes with Pierre Hermé, Alain Passard and Michel Bras among others, then opened his own restaurant in the very chic 8th district of Marseille. Starting as a pastry chef, Alexandre Mazzia moved up and fears nothing. At AM, you will find no menu, but blind tastings. A dozen dishes will go by before your eyes, with sheer creativity in the making. For instance, seafood is sublimated by a few delicate Asian influences. Unexpected pairings do not worry the chef, as signalled by his signature dishes: flower crispbread with harissa-strawberry condiments, langoustine with dates and broccoli in grilled sesame, Ladour salmon with pineapple and oyster shell miso, or eel-chocolate, coffee-hibiscus and coffee-sweet potato-button mushrooms desserts.
The black front, stylish decoration, concrete walls and clear-wood tables all showcase a pared-down and efficient atmosphere, in which Alexandre Mazzia's cooking is truly given pride of place. A minimalist and elegant setting for a gastronomical journey that will undoubtedly surprise you!
