What's new


Joel Garault, ex-chef of the Hermitage Hotel's Vistamar restaurant, has been lured out of retirement by Laurent Colin, executive chef of Meridien Beach Plaza. The two men are preparing a gastronomic 4-handed tasting menu this evening in the Intempo restaurant, price 120 euros pp, excl. drinks. Phone +377 93 15 78 88 or email antonio.fochi[at]lemeridien.com for reservations.

Cantinetta Antinori, the Tuscan restaurant that's displaced Bistrot Bouchon, is due to open on Monday 11 December (see 2 November newsletter). It's already established a Facebook page, where you'll find mouthwatering images of carpaccio, truffle-smothered mash and pasta, and tiramisu. Yum!

And finally, Monaco is to build a rugby stadium at Stade Devens above Beasoleil. The news was reported in yesterday's Nice Matin, which said Beausoleil town council had agreed to lease the land to the Principality for up to 12 years. There's a thriving rugby club in Monaco, plenty of proud Welsh fans, and Prince Albert and Princess Charlene also enjoy the sport. Up to now, matches have had to be played in Menton or Cannes, but not for much longer.
