Cap Marquet beach restaurant in Cap d'Ail is organizing two BBQ evenings with live music. The first is today and features Emily Johnson and her group. Jean-Yves Maistre and his Brazilian musicians will be performing during the second evening, 25 August. For more information and reservations phone +33 4 92 10 10 17.
Cremaillere restaurant has reopened after a gap of a couple of years. We visited for an apero last week and can recommend the vodkatini. If you try the food, let us know what you think.
Capocaccia, the Italian/Japanese restaurant has changed its name to Da Capo. The restaurant opened in 1994 as a franchise and the new name reflects a different management structure. For the moment the kitchen remains the same.
Monaco Restaurant Group's (MRG) Moshi Moshi (see 24 March newsletter) is now open for business in Fontvieille and serving dishes that fuse Japanese and Mediterranean flavours. Chef Toshimi Takiya has worked at Avenue 31 and Song Qi, both MRG establishements, and fans of the group's corporate style will recognize the touch of designers Humbert and Poyet.
MRG's expansion will continue into Condamine district, now we have confirmation that the group's Grubers burger bar (see 18 February newsletter) will be opening in the premises vacated by Cotoletteria.
And finally, we offer our condolences and sympathy to all those who have been affected by the shocking events of last Thursday in Nice.
