With the revival of the Saint-Germain market and the number of visitors it attracts, the entire neighbourhood has got a new boost of life.
Under the leadership of Valérie Balard, the Monteverdi, a Saint-Germain institution since 42 years, adapts and fits well in with its time and new habits. The Monteverdi is now open lunchtimes on Saturdays and Sundays to accommodate customers shopping at the market. The chef, Salvatore Laudando, from l’Amaranto, restaurant of the Four Seasons hotel in London, also garnishes the menu with the creation of two delicious pizzas: one with smoked truffle-mozzarella and the other with fig-mozzarella di bufala-rocket-San Daniele ham. He continues to revisit classic Italian pasta, but also creates new recipes, such as the linguine with cream of aubergine, roasted gambas et tomatoes confit with orange zest and roasted pistachios or paccheri stuffed with ricotta di bufala, beef, smoked mozzarella and basil. The charming and authentic decor fits perfectly with this sophisticated kitchen, the romantic and intimate lounge with its cosy fireplace, the stylish pewter bar and the presence of a pianist every evening of the week and a singer at weekends. New! Brunch on Sundays! At the Monteverdi, all senses are in heaven…
