It's mostly about the food this week. Nice Matin reports that the African Queen in Beaulieu has been taken over by Riccardo Giraudi's Monaco Restaurant Group. It's now closed for refurbishment and scheduled to reopen in spring 2023, with promises that neither the "DNA" nor the staff will change. Later next year the "brand" is to be exported to Dubai.

Also expected in spring is the reopening of Metropole Hotel's gastronomic restaurant. It was previously named for chef Joel Robuchon, but we don't yet know if Christophe Cussac will christen it with his own moniker.

Email Gourmand recently visited La Table d'Antonio Salvatore at Rampoldi. The 1-star restaurant is hidden downstairs in the old cigar room and offers a 6-course menu for 145 euros, or 9 courses for 185 euros. We were mighty impressed when we visited in 2020.

Have you got your tickets for Club Vivanova's Luxury Lifestyle Gala next weekend? The annual event takes place in the Fairmont Monte Carlo and tickets are selling fast. It's an opportunity to don your best bib and tucker, partake of some gourmet grub and fine wines, all while benefitting the charities Chances for Children, Borneo Wildlife Preservation, and Mimosa. But don't just take our word for it, head over to the website for more information.

If you find yourself in Port Hercule with about 30-40 minutes to spare, take a look around the Monaco On Stage experience. Our roving reporter Cabbie Monaco visited earlier this week and wrote a review.

And finally...

The British Association is asking for items that can be sold at the Kermesse Oecumenique on 3rd December. Contact bam[at] if you can help.
