Alain Ducasse's Guide to Monaco
“Producers, bakers, butchers, fishermen and flower vendors meet every morning at Marché de la Condamine. Try the socca, a Provençal pancake made with chickpea flour.” 15 Place d’Armes.
Taste of the Riviera
“For a drink, go to The Blue Gin. It is a magical venue with a fantastic view of the sea—the perfect place to relax!” 40 Av. Princesse Grace; montecarlobay.com.
“The Riviera is still the inspiration of my cuisine at Le Louis XV, but the menu has been completely rewritten,” Ducasse says. Take a seat in the elegant, updated dining room for modern Mediterranean dishes like lobster perfumed with ginger and myrtle berries, and herb-seasoned fish cooked on hot stones (below). Hôtel de Paris, Place du Casino; hoteldeparismontecarlo.com.
“At this seasonal Champagne pop-up with views over the sea, you can taste the unique Dom Perignon Cuvée P2 and Michelin-starred chef Paolo Sari’s organic cuisine.” Av. Princesse Grace; lavigiemontecarlo.com.
