Le Grill Reopens at the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo

Just in time for the 75th Grand Prix Automobile de Monaco (May 25th-28th, 2017), the legendary Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo has reopened Le Grill with an all-new look. Perched on the eighth floor, the restaurant has an expanded terrace with views over the Mediterranean all the way to Corsica. Did we mention the retractable roof so you can dine under the stars?

Not only did the makeover enhance the terrace, but it also added the Winston Churchill private dining room and revamped the décor in a more contemporary, sea-themed style. Franck Cerutti, the Executive Chef of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo and a Riviera native, sums up Le Grill in two words: “Mediterranean” and “marine.”

On the menu you’ll find specialties from the region—from Provence to Tuscany—showcasing local bounty like freshly fished sea bream, sea bass and John Dory sourced from area fishermen. There’s a new wood-fired rotisserie, where skewers of meat and fish turn on a spit. Guests are invited to choose their cuts of meat, hanging from the restaurant’s signature silver table racks, a long-time tradition. Menu highlights include Préalpes du Sud rack of lamb, Free-range cockerel, and pasta dishes like “Pasqualina” ravioli and Pasta casarecce (“like at home”) vongole, baby squid and crustaceans.

To pair with the cuisine, head sommelier Patrice Frank has chosen wines from Provence, the Piedmont and Tuscany (Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo has one of the biggest wine cellars in the world, and Le Grill features more than 700 of these wines). To cap off your meal, choose one of the restaurant’s famous soufflés, like Grand Marnier or chocolate made with specialty bean-to-bar chocolate created at La Manufacture of Alain Ducasse.

Part of the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer group, Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo launched an ambitious renovation project in October 2014 that’s scheduled to last four years. The 150-year-old has stayed opened during this time with 53 guest rooms and suites.
