The multi award-winning Latin American restaurant group, COYA, has announced the launch of its first European site outside of London.
The new eatery will be opening on the east side of Monte-Carlo this coming May, coinciding with the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix. It will be located above Jimmy’z Monte-Carlo and the four-star Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort on Avenue Princesse Grace.
The 257-cover venue will incorporate a buzzing and vibrant bar and a contemporary Peruvian restaurant. In collaboration with Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer (SBM), COYA Monte-Carlo is set to revive the city’s culinary scene, providing a vibrant hub for international visitors and the stars of music, film, fashion and sport.
Guests will be taken on a Latin American journey from the moment they arrive at the grand entrance of COYA Monte-Carlo. The sweeping terrace, which captures views of the ocean and French Riviera will become a colourful destination hotspot, featuring COYA’s infamous Pisco Bar & Lounge and a luxury shisha experience where guests can select from a menu of exotic fruit infusions. A DJ booth adjacent to the bar will welcome COYA’s resident DJ’s throughout the summer.
A menu of globally renowned COYA dishes will be overseen by Chef Sanjay Dwivedi who combines traditional elements of Peruvian cuisine with Modern European cooking techniques and Asian influences to create COYA’s naturally light and healthy dishes.
Designed by the London-based design studio Sagrada, who are responsible for all COYA venues worldwide, the décor will incorporate Peruvian artifacts, eye-catching plant features and bespoke hand-crafted furniture. A key design feature of the restaurant will be the Ceviche Bar; an open preparation kitchen that puts guests at the centre of the action to watch the iconic Peruvian dishes being made.
A 30-seater Private Dining Room, the largest across all COYAs worldwide, will provide ultimate exclusivity and a spectacular dining experience with unrivalled views.
COYA Monte-Carlo will be open in May throughout high season, closing in October 2018 for the winter period.
