What's new

"Tra la, it's May, the lusty month of May," as Queen Guinevere sang, and what a gorgeous holiday it was yesterday.

Talking of holidays, we passed through Nice Airport T1 on a short jaunt last week and spotted the newly opened Beefbar Deli, "born in Monte Carlo." It's actually quite difficult to miss, as it stands right next to the non-Schengen passport control. Don't expect grilled steak and mashed potato tho'. This is a fast food outlet, unlike the Fontvieille restaurant. Instead, you can buy mini pizzas and sandwiches filled with charcuterie, most notably cured Kobe beef, air-dried in the Spanish Cecina caves. For travellers on early flights the outlet sells croissants and pastries, and there's also a range of "Made in Monaco" products to take away: Espresso Monte Carlo coffee capsules, Brasserie de Monaco beer, and L'Orangerie liqueur.

What's in the diary ....


Thursday: jazz with Jilly Jackson.
Friday: Enchanted Forest party.
Saturday: dog show.
Sunday:  Monaco v St Etienne.
 
Coming up next week: a guided tour of Hotel de Paris, and EVER Monaco.
