What's new

 
We're very sad to report another loss to Monaco's independent restaurant scene. A sign on the door of Royal Thai states "fermeture definitive", thus depriving the Principality not only of an alternative to the ubiquitous Italo-French cuisine, but also of a great bottle of Pouilly Fume from Chateau de Tracy.

The closure follows hot on the heels of Address, just a few doors up the street. We now know that its new proprietors are already active in Monaco, at Il Calcio on boulevard des Moulins.

At least the cultural and social life continues, in spite of oppressive heat and the summer lull. Last Thursday we experienced the 50-years-old sci-fi movie 2001: A Space Odyssey on Monaco Open Air Cinema's big screen, and on Tuesday we rubbed shoulders with the good folks of MonacoUSA. The association organized a very enjoyable performance of student a-cappella group The Harvard Krokodiloes.

Finally, we're taking a break ourselves next week, so will not be publishing a newsletter. But before we go, we want to shout out a big "bon courage" to Monaco FC, who face titans of French football, Paris Saint Germain in the Super Cup final on Saturday.
