What's new

Yesterday morning, in spite of workers still levelling pathways and laying pavements, the tables were being laid at Mada One, the new rendez-vous of Monaco's Carre d'Or. It's located in one of the buildings of the One Monte-Carlo shopping precinct, and is the latest food outlet of Monte Carlo SBM. The cafe aims to serve the glitterati of Monaco with healthy snacks throughout the day, under the Snackonomie concept devised by Marcel Ravin, Michelin-starred chef of Blue Bay.

So, what's being served and when? Breakfast, from 8am, is available by formule or a la carte. A full American (18 euros) includes bacon, sausage (chicken), eggs, juice and hot drink. For those in a rush, there's the 'express' croissant and coffee (5 euros). Soups and dishes-of-the-day are available at lunchtime, and in the afternoon, the not-so-healthy cream tea (12 euros) includes two scones, jam and Devonshire clotted cream (here's an invitation to anyone who'd like to accompany me to try that!) After work, there's the 'apero-therapie' concept from 5.30pm onwards, with glasses of wine from 6 to 13 euros. Throughout the day you can buy bread and pastries to take out, as well as branded grocery products. For more information, visit the Mada One restaurant website, and for reservations phone +377 98 06 68 68. Open daily, 8:00-20:00.

The annual classical music festival, Printemps des Arts, begins tomorrow. This year the music of Beethoven, Kagel and Brahms features heavily.

And finally, it's the time of year when everyone with an Irish heritage and anyone who enjoys the craic is celebrating. Yes, St Patrick's Day in Monaco is on Sunday, and extends to next Friday with the Monaco Ireland Arts Society production about Irish Hellraisers Richard Harris and Peter O'Toole. Enjoy!
