Une gastronomie en simplicité d’aujourd’hui

Par Lionel Leoty Le Petit Lu Gourmand, Anne Emellina et Laurence Jacquet

Simple gastronomy for today. In June, Hôtel Métropole Monte-Carlo revealed its new gastronomic dining style after a two-year refurbishment. Chef Christophe Cussac, who worked for Joël Robuchon for years, has taken over all the hotel’s catering and put his own stamp on it. Head here for French gastronomic fare, as elegant as the chef himself, with reassuringly simple dishes that let the palate detect all the fine quality of the ingredients. The bread and cheese trolleys, in the grand tradition of luxury restaurants, bring a sparkle to the most jaded gourmet’s eyes. Mediterranean recipes, seafood, and the matchless potato purée Cussac learned from the great Robuchon. Cussac’s faithful pastry chef Patrick Mesiano produces wonderful desserts.
