I am not a Formula One fan at all, I never thought about it until recently when I was invited to watch the 78th Monaco Grand Prix. I first started to know F1 via the Netflix series but while it’s interesting I couldn’t dig deep enough to find it fascinating, and I fell asleep each episode.
After a few days of F1, I realize the forces of F1 are incredible and I have a totally new appreciation for the sport as I watch my son’s expression as the cars roar by. There is no doubt the place to be is Hôtel de Paris but be aware it has some timing drawbacks so without good planning you are not going to get what you need if you wish to dine and watch the racing at table front.
But if you adore racing now consider the idea of three star Michelin cuisine and super noisy cars rumbling and roaring as they pass meters away. It sounds like hell but it is just the opposite, the adrenaline rushes across your face as the cars pass.
There is no experience quite like Alain Ducasse in the Hôtel de Paris and I have my fingers crossed after he lost the Plaza Athénée in Paris, but will he succumb to the perils of a costly three star Michelin operation in Monaco subsidized by SBM. I fear it is something of the past when clients search more casual foods so enjoy it while it lasts.
