What's new

Song Qi is working with a team of upmarket Chinese chefs over the next three days to offer diners a selection of new dishes. The visitors are from the China Tang Hong Kong restaurant group and they have helped create a lunch menu that includes dim sum, chicken and matsukake mushroom soup, fish in chilli sauce and dandan noodles. In the evening diners can choose steamed lobster dumpling, chicken braised with black truffle and wild mushrooms, and a traditional Hong Kong egg tart for dessert. Phone +77 99 99 33 33 for reservations.

On Tuesday we attended the opening of an exhibition called Is This Art Or Money? featuring work by Benjamin Vautier. Ben is well-known for his "ecritures", which have been used to decorate everything from exercise books and pencil cases, to stops on the Nice tramway. The event was attended by the artist, who showed us a new ecriture created especially for Monaco, reading "mon yacht est plus beau que le tien." Oligarchs currently in town for the Yacht Show have been reticent to buy the artwork because, Ben smiled, the owners preferred their vessels to be described as "bigger" rather than "more beautiful". It's a small exhibition, running until 17 November, and well worth a visit.

And finally, from a well established artist to an up-and-coming one. Olivia Brazier is hoping to exhibit her work in Monaco in October. She has already had a mini exhibition in the Novotel earlier this year, called Tickle Me Pink, and is currently awaiting confirmation for the next event, Fruit Drawers.
