What's new

After six years Bistrot Bouchon closed for good last weekend. The Monaco Restaurant Group establishment was a favourite for morning coffee and afternoon aperos, but to be honest, it lost its way when the kitchen rejected traditional French bistro dishes for "American healthy" cuisine. Gluten-free, quinoa and kale creations just didn't satisfy.

Now the restaurant is to have a makeover and will reopen as Cantinetta Antinori, the fifth of a Florentine brand that serves Tuscan food with Marchesi Antinori wines. Following expansion to Zurich and Vienna in the 1990s, the concept partnered up with Russian millionnaire Arkady Novikov for its Moscow opening in 2004. The Monaco restaurant plans to open on 4 December, just in time for the end of year festivities.

Did you catch the recent news about a cable car that will link Jardin Exotique to the Rock via Fontvieille? The new means of transport forms part of a project to regenerate Fontvieille shopping centre and to reduce the amount of road traffic in the Principality. A decision on the idea will be taken within the next six months, with an expected delivery date of 2021.
