What's new

Nobu in the Fairmont has a new sushi master. Wagner Spadacio is originally from Brazil, but has worked with Toshimi Takiya (previously with Moshi Moshi), and with 3-star chef Hirohisa Koyama of Bazara in Tokyo. The experience paid off with a 2017 Sushi Champion of France award, and second place in the 2018 Tokyo Sushi World Cup. Phone +377 97 70 70 97 for dinner reservations, daily 18:30-23:00.

Monte Carlo Bay's Las Brisas restaurant is serving Sunday brunches on the terrace from now until the end of September. A strolling group provides musical background for the buffet, which includes unlimited rose wine and costs 110 euros for adults, 55 euros for children aged 6-11. Phone +377 98 06 03 60 for reservations.

The Mairie is once again distributing ashtrays on the beach and the digue in an effort to reduce the number of cigarette butts littering bathing areas. It's also designated Parc Princesse Antoinette a no-smoking zone, and will shortly extend the ban to the Jardin Exotique.

And finally, if you're looking for some summer reading, French writer Marc Magro has a new book out called Un Menu Pour l'Enfer. The author is an emergency doctor in Nice and Menton, as well as being medical captain of the regional fire services. His story opens with a strange conversation between the Michelin-starred chef of a luxury hotel in Monaco and his ex-wife. A few hours later, an explosion badly damages the hotel, killing and wounding a number of VIPs attending a climate change conference. Accident, sabotage, or assassination?
