Not content to import just one celebrity chef for the winter season, Le Royal Monceau Paris has also tapped Matteo Temperini—chef at Le Sirenuse hotel in Positano, Italy—to surprise guests this December. While Nobu Matsuhisa has a pop-up restaurant at the hotel’s La Cuisine restaurant through January, Matteo Temperini will set up shop at Il Carpaccio, the hotel’s signature Italian eatery, from December 11-22.
Guests can tuck into signature dishes from both Il Carpaccio and La Sponda (the Michelin-starred restaurant at Le Sirenuse): Vegetable minestrone with Ricotta “Gnudi Toscani” and Perugia black truffle bread crust; Spaghetti from Gragnano, tomatoes and extra olive oil from ‘Castell’ in Villa’; John Dory cooked with Abruzzi saffron, baby fennel and green tomatoes. To finish, the dessert menu stars delights from Le Sirenuse, like Rum Baba with Valrhona Chocolate and Surprise meringue with Amalfi Coast citrus. Of course, sommelier Manuel Peyrondet will recommend some of the finest Italian wines to match your meal.
