The Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris hotel is expanding its culinary roster with guest chefs from all horizons. Through next month, celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa joins house chef Laurent André in the kitchens of La Cuisine for a dinner-only appearance featuring Nobu signatures such as tuna sashimi salad and blackened cod as well as South American-inspired dishes, such as Chilean bass with jalapeno sauce. In addition to an à la carte menu, there is a seven-course Omakase, or chef’s choice tasting menu (for 150 euros, or $199 at current exchange). Then on Feb. 12, guest chef Renato Piccolotto of the Hotel Cipriani in Venice will join chef Roberto Rispoli at the Royal Monceau-Raffles’ Italian restaurant Il Carpaccio for a four-day stint, featuring his signature risotto and taglierini. The chefs have also designed a collaborative tasting menu (for 135 euros, or $179). “We try to make it surprising for guests every time,” commented Omer Acar, general manager of the hotel. “Cultivating a dialogue between chefs is key to the creative process.”
