Fodor's Expert Review Elsa

$$$$ Monaco French
Paoli Sari is not the first chef to earn a cherished Michelin star, but he is the first to be awarded the honor for an all-organic restaurant. The Venetian-born chef uses the produce of 30 local growers from around France and Italy, and just as many winemakers. The seafood on his menu comes from small inshore fishermen, and he chooses the best fair-trade coffee and chocolate and makes his own mozzarella. Breads made with organic flour are baked daily before lunch and dinner. Start with assorted summer vegetables from the chef’s own garden, finished with extra-virgin olive oil and fleur de sel from Camargue. Mouthwatering main dishes include gold risotto with saffron, juicy roasted suckling pig with caramelized shallots and potatoes, or roasted rack of lamb coated with honey celeriac and licorice puree. If your wallet permits dessert, the soufflé with almonds or the three-chocolate and caramel mille-feuille with caramelized figue sauce will leave you wanting nothing else. The terrace views are cruiseworthy, but don’t let the nautical casualness deceive you; the service is first-rate and the food inspired.
