French Riviera Restaurant Cooks Up Excitement at Its New Sunday Brunch

Fushi Restaurant at the AC Hotel Ambassadeur Antibes - Juan les Pins Celebrates Seasons and Crosses Borders in Its Cuisine

JUAN LES PINS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2014) - In a place like the French Riviera, cultural sophistication is as prevalent as turquoise waves. So just as the shopping, nightlife and entertainment all reflect the region's cosmopolitan atmosphere, so too must the dining scene. This, anyway, is how Fushi sees things. Set within the exquisitely contemporary AC Hotel Ambassadeur Antibes - Juan les Pins, this Mediterranean restaurant recently launched a lavish Sunday brunch to complement its daily menus. And with its chefs also whipping up some of the most savory and inventive catering found in the French Riviera, people aren't just tasting the difference. They're talking about it.

Launched this month, Fushi's Sunday brunch welcomes guests between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to its elegant restaurant with a terrace in Antibes. Whether diners relax on the shaded terrace or prefer the soft grays and whites of the stylish dining room, everyone can agree on one thing: The buffet is the main attraction.

Guests can choose from starters like smoked salmon and toast or, in a nod to its Mediterranean provenance, tomato salad with cucumber and parmesan before moving on to the sumptuous main courses. These include options from all corners of Europe, whether it's the rösti potato, penne with arabiatta sauce or full English breakfast. Desserts are equally tempting with a variety of pastries that encourage everyone to end the meal on a sweet note.

While diners can indulge in the buffet and drinks for just EUR42 per person (or EUR19 per child), there are other ways to experience the culinary brilliance of Fushi's Chefs de Cuisine, Eric Ciais and Raphaël Maumy. Offering some of the most innovative catering services in Antibes, the hotel's chefs can make meetings, galas, weddings, receptions and events of any size or nature something to savor -- literally.

Chefs Ciais and Maumy boast different culinary educations, which translate to tempting menus. The Thai, Japanese and South American influences can be traced back to Chef Ciais, who hails from the Alain Ducasse Formation in Paris. Chef Maumy, meanwhile, specialized in catering and pastry at Nièvre's Château Chinon School. Both chefs rely on seasonal ingredients to inspire menus in which French dishes receive healthy updates and global touches. And whether Chefs Ciais and Maumy are cooking for buffets, cocktail receptions, dinners or meeting breaks, they can accommodate virtually any group size or preference. Flexibility, after all, is a hallmark of not just this luxury property but of a destination that welcomes a global population. And that's something guests can sink their teeth into.
