A New Year's Eve Dinner


Where will you be spending New Year's Eve? These tables are in the charming Eze Hermitage Restaurant and Hotel on the Grande Corniche in Eze. Highly recommended with great food - I lunched with a group of friends (18 of us) the Sunday before Christmas.

And if you want to dine in Monaco tonight, well you might just be too late. The 'grandes tables' such as Alain Ducasse's Louis XV in the Hôtel de Paris and Joel Robuchon Monte Carlo have been fully booked for weeks. In fact all of the important restaurants in the Principality are fully booked. There will be more than 1000 meals served tonight in the grand restaurants with prices that range from 99 euros to 760 euros a head for a gastronomic evening of foie gras, coquilles Saint-Jacques, truffles and more... Recession? What recession?

Happy New Year everyone!

Looks like a nice meal in a beautiful place!
We have to go to countryside since our older dog is afraid of fireworks and loud sounds. It's so much more quiet in there, and lot easier for him, too.
Happy New Year to you ,too!

Recession is definitely a two-speed thing. It isn't for all.

I imagine you took this picture just before your grand lunch with friends last week. What a cosy and sunny place to go for lunch !

Yes, that's right, Nathalie. Taken a second before we all sat down and got stuck into a great lunch and not that expensive.

I surmise that there is no such thing as a bad meal in Eze.

Happy New Year.

And, where will you be having your New Year's Eve dinner? I hope you have a fabulous new year!

That 99 euros meal is extravagant for me, I can't imagine the other end of that spectrum.
