A renowned gastronomic gem nestled in the heart of Monte-Carlo, Blue Bay is set to reopen its doors in February 2024 following an extensive hiatus for renovations after being awarded its second Michelin star. Chef Marcel Ravin is known for his innovative and daring fusion of Caribbean and Mediterranean flavours – and with the re-opening at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, he is setting the stage for an unparalleled culinary adventure in the Principality.
Notably, the reopening comes with the launch of a new and exclusive ‘La Table de Marcel’ experience. While the restaurant seats 44, and approximately 50 on the stunning terrace overlooking the Mediterranean, ‘Marcel’s Table’ offers eight intimate seats which promise a personalised, intimate, culinary encounter where guests can dive into a specially tailored menu crafted on the spot by Chef Ravin and his team before their eyes.
The menu, changing every three weeks, reflects the team’s commitment to working with what they can source from the kitchen’s garden and the people they encounter. Featured delights include the “Œuf Monte-Carlo,” an organic egg infused with cassava, truffle, and passion fruit, captivating the palate.
Timeless classics, such as ‘The Chocolate of My Childhood,’ offer a symphony of indulgence for the senses. Five variations of cocktails have also been added to the menu, as well as “Marcel’s Rum” in collaboration with Rhum Clément, which will lend itself perfectly to food and rum pairings.
Ravin collaborated with the talented interior designer Alexandra Saguet to renovate the restaurant terrace. The design draws inspiration from the five elements, resonating with the Chef’s culture and the wisdom passed on to him by his elders. During their first meeting, the Chef gifted her the book ‘D’un Rocher à l’autre’, which helped her learn about his background and understand the nature and origins of his cuisine, enabling her to bring his ideas for the restaurant to life.
