n 2016 the famous Chef Nobu Matsuhisa opened the exclusive restaurant Matsuhisa Paris. In a totally redesigned place with a contemporary and zen spirit, the restaurant offers a new culinary experience fusing savors from Japan to Peruvian cuisine. Matsuhisa Paris became an instant hit and a new trendy spot for both Parisians and demanding travellers who are looking for an exotic experience. This year, until the end of July, the Royal Monceau is proposing a unique Japanese menu inspired by the visit of chef Nobu Matsuhisa, to enjoy in its secluded restaurant. Le Matsuhisa Niwa, a temporary space that gives on to a Japanese garden hidden at the heart of the hotel, welcomes up to eight guests every Thursday and Friday evening. Have executive chef Hideki Endo all to yourself as you admire the art of a sushi master in action. Ruinart, which has come on board for this culinary journey, will painstakingly pair each of the dishes with one of its champagnes. During chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s visit, a second innovation, this time permanent, was launched at the restaurant of Le Royal Monceau: the Omakase Bar Experience. At the top table, in front of the team of Sushi Chefs, guests experience a dinner like no other. Each evening, executive chef Hideki Enko improvises, right in front of their eyes, a menu of eight dishes, depending on his inspiration and the produce of the day. This summmer, Le Royal Monceau is decking out its Royal Garden by Tanqueray terrace in soft hues. A designer, bucolic space with plant walls and strings of lights, this refreshing spot designed in partnership with gin brand Tanqueray has an exclusive list of frozen cocktails, pizzas to share by Italian chef Gennaro Nasti, and ices with retro flavors brought back to the fore by Pierre Hermé. And whatever you do, don’t miss the summer jazz line-up every Monday evening.
Art is everywhere at Le Royal Monceau: the hotel’s Art Gallery presents art installations all year round whereas the Art Concierge guides and advises guests on current art news and devises tailor-made plans. The 7th Art is part of Le Royal Monceau spirit with the unique Katara Cinema, a private movie theater, where comfortably seated, guests could watch a movie every Sunday night! Art and design are brought to the five-story hôtel particulier located at 41 avenue Hoche which houses several suites, including three presidential suites. The largest of these apartment-suites boasts a Turkish bath, a private kitchen, a fitness room with personal trainer and a highly elaborate home cinema as well as a direct access to the 1,500 sq.m “My Blend” by Clarins Spa. More than a hotel, it is a residence in the full sense of the word, where everything is devoted to caring for guests who discuss their tastes with the Chef to determine what they want for lunch or dinner. True luxury lies in total freedom, in the power to fulfill one’s imagination. It’s clear that Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris meets this high demand for excellence.
