Gala Dinner invented and elaborated by Joel Robuchon

Last July 13, the official opening of the Exhibition « Kyoto-Tokyo , from Samurais to Mangas » was held at the Grimaldi Forum in the presence of numerous personalities including H.S.H. Prince Albert II and LL.AA.II Prince Hitachi, the younger brother of the Emperor, accompanied by his wife. It was a nice tribute to cultural diversity and friendship between Japan and Monaco.

As the privileged partner of the Grimaldi Forum’s exhibition, the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo had the honor of hosting the exhibition’s inaugural dinner. Joel Robuchon, in person, and the team from the Michelin-starred restaurant YOSHI prepared a menu reflecting the Japanese restaurant’s Kaiseki cuisine.

The five-course discovery menu included the “SHAKE, fresh salmon tartare with caviar and gold leaf”, followed by the “ZEITAKU WAKAME, shellfish in champon vinaigrette jelly”, the “EBI SHINJO, kombu consommé with shrimp ball” as well as the GHINDARA NO SAIKYO YAKI, marinated black cod”, and to finish the “AMANDO, blancmange with pistachio”. The dishes were accompanied by a variety of sakes, presented by the greatest producers from Japan, who were sponsoring this prestigious event.  

The guests could visit the 4,000 square meters of the Grimaldi Forum’s exhibition, which combines, in a breathtaking scenery, ancient Japan from Kyoto, the former capital, with the modern image of the current capital, Tokyo. One of the greatest moments of the inauguration was the live calligraphy performance by artist Hiroshi Hirata. Some 600 exhibits, amongst them collections from the most prestigious Japanese and Western museums, illustrate the Land of the Rising Sun’s history and art.
