At Alexandre Mazzia’s, newly promoted in the Michelin Guide

Despite the health crisis forcing the closure of restaurants, the Red Guide insisted on maintaining its 2021 edition. This year, only one establishment was awarded the third macaroon: AM, the restaurant where Marseille-based chef Alexandre Mazzia works. This 44-year-old chef, who has been treating us to daring Mediterranean cuisine in the heart of the city of Marseille for the past six years, has become the 30th chef in France to join the prestigious circle of triple-starred restaurants. Focus on this new great chef… 

A former basketball player born in sub-Saharan Africa and adopted from Marseille, Alexandre Mazzia found his calling through a meal at Gérald Passedat’s, the other three-star chef from Marseille. This experience led him to change his life by reorienting himself towards the restaurant business, first as the personal chef of a billionaire, before packing his bags in Marseille in 2010. After working for three years at the Cité radieuse – Le Corbusier restaurant, he opened a 24-seat restaurant in a narrow street in the Prado residential district, with a very sober style. Six years later, after a first and a second star, the Michelin Guide awarded him the third macaroon, praising “the energy and concentration of the teams, the perfection in the execution, the incredible regularity of the cuisine,” and thus consecrating the meteoric rise of this chef and explorer of flavors.
