In the luxurious setting of the Hôtel de Paris in Monte Carlo, myth and reality find their maximum expression in the iconic Le Louis XV restaurant. Since 1987, Alain Ducasse has been enthralling all those who cross the threshold of his kingdom with an apparently incomparable cuisine, which invites guests to explore a world of pure Mediterranean taste. Now the reins of this emblem of fine dining are held firmly by chef Dominique Lory, an expert in extolling the delicacies of the remotest corners of the Côte d’Azur with decidedly local ingredients, aromas and colours. Classic techniques and simple cooking styles, the Ducassian culinary identity appears to be light-years away from the opulence of the gold-lined dining room. An example of this is the Provence garden vegetables cooked with black truffle, that has been on the menu for over thirty years with its power of aromas, flavours and absolute contrasts. The disarming simplicity, seasoned with exquisite touches, lies in the ability to exalt nature’s perfection by following an approach worthy of a skilled master craftsman. Noël Bajor, a sommelier in terms of culture and instinct, amplifies this delightful experience by drawing on one of the most prestigious selections of wines in the world.
