It will occupy the space previously taken by their formal dining room. The hotel added a narrow terrace space providing a bit of outdoor seating where diners will experience the serene views and sounds of the Mediterranean Sea. In addition, Nobu restaurant added a spectacular bar and two private meeting lounges.

Chef Nobu is collaborating with the Fairmont’s Executive Chef, Philippe Joannès who has worked with his staff to incorporate the new cuisine into their culinary portfolio. Pastry Chef, Claire Verneil stated that she will be making desserts “…under Nobu guidelines in the Monoco way with the Nobu spirit.” Hotel guests and local diners will enjoy Chef Nobu’s take on Asian cuisine where he mixes traditional Japanese dishes with South American spices to create a unique blend that awakens the palette without overwhelming it.

Preparations underway at Nobu

It was a shame that I missed the grand opening event by only two days, but at least I was present to snap a quick photo before tonight’s big unveiling. I can hardly wait for my next trip to Monte Carlo – a meal at Nobu will be first on my list.

Nobu is open evenings from 7:00 PM to 11:30 PM seven nights a week. Reservations can be made here: nobu@fairmont.com

    It’s been a while since we visited Monte Carlo. It sounds like it’s time to go back!

      Dear Laura,
      I would definitely advise heading back to Monte Carlo for a return visit. I would also recommend checking out nearby Menton and Nice as there are changes to both of these places too! Plus, all of these cities/towns are sunny nearly every day of the year. What’s not to love?
      Thanks for taking the time to comment and for following The Weekend In Paris. I hope you will subscribe and keep in touch.
