The heart and stomach of a king (1)

What's new

Maya Jah, the new Indian/Moroccan restaurant on avenue Princesse Grace is set to open on Tuesday 12 September. Further to our last report (see 3 Aug newsletter) the team has been furnishing its facebook page with close-up photos of the decor. Interior designers have been hammering bits of metal and upholstering seats with flamboyantly coloured fabric in an effort to create the allure of the East. Unfortunately there are no images of what they promise will be "a unique culinary experience in Monaco" featuring "atypical dishes".

 Milanese cafe brand Cova (see 8 Dec newsletter), on the other hand, is tempting us with pictures of its Italian treats. The coffee and pastry shop opened this week on boulevard des Moulins and is deliciously at odds with the current trend for gluten-, dairy- and sugar-free food. Cova Monte Carlo's facebook page features mouthwatering photos of pastries; the chantilly bigne looks especially yummy. But will the coffee be up to the standards of Casa del Caffe and Planet Cafe? I'll be in there later today and will let you know.

What's in the diary ....

Thursday: French literature readings.
Friday: The Hitman's Bodyguard.
Saturday: French rap.
Sunday: Moneghetti market stalls.

Coming up next week, return to school, a surprise screening, and classic craft.
