Song-Qi (7 Av. Princesse Grace, Monaco) — the first gourmet Chinese restaurant in the principality, Michelin starred chef Alan Yau’s cuisine may be excellent, but isn’t the only reason to drop by. Paris-based architects Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet have created a very sleek design with a contemporary twist on Shanghai’s 1930s golden age for the restaurant. The space is extraordinary in its impact, with the refined attention to detail, the use of color and the combination of materials bringing one of the most exclusive addresses in the world on the avenue Princess Grace back to life once again. Yau’s menu at Song Qi offers dishes to share, as is customary in China and represents Chinese culinary art and modern luxury, just like the restaurant’s interiors.
