The Paris dining scene is heating up this winter with the arrival of chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa. World famous for his Japanese cuisine accented with South American influences, chef Nobu will be opening a gastronomic restaurant called Matsuhisa Paris in February. The location? Inside the swanky Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Hotel on Avenue Hoche. The palace hotel reopened in 2010 after a major renovation by designer Philippe Starck. Swanky facilities include the Clarins spa, in-house cinema, the trendy boutique called Le Royal Eclaireur, and the chocolate bar by renowned pastry chef Pierre Hermé.

This will be Nobu’s sixth Matsuhisa restaurant in the world; other outposts include Beverly Hills, Aspen, Munich, Mykonos and Athens. Replacing the hotel’s La Cuisine restaurant, Matsuhisa Paris will be open for lunch and dinner. In addition to the new Japanese fine dining restaurant, Le Royal Monceau will continue to serve breakfast, brunch and Italian cuisine in its Michelin-starred restaurant "Il Carpaccio." Nobu is no stranger to Paris; the chef has hosted special pop-up events in the French capital in the past.
