Monte Carlo Hospitality Group outlines the excellence and the warmth of Mediterranean hospitality through the luxury of fine Monegasque dining creating a renewed link between New York and Monte Carlo.
The excellence of mediterranean culture
The MCHG – Monte Carlo Hospitality Group team brings to the United States the rich culinary traditions of the Franco-Italian gourmet style and the well-established experience gained in the luxury hospitality sector with the Rampoldi restaurant creating a genuinely recognizable brand.
The Rampoldi restaurant, the heart of the group, was opened in 1946 and is now the oldest, recognized, and celebrated institution in Monte Carlo, awarded a Michelin star. Since 1970 the New York Times has regularly recommended its readers to visit the Rampoldi restaurant on their trips to the Côte d’Azur.
The bonds between New York and Monaco have always been strong, especially after the famous American actress became Princess Grace of Monaco and mother of Prince Albert II, the current Sovereign in the Principality of Monaco.
In addition to Rampoldi and La Table of Antonio Salvatore, the MCHG will open in June 2021 Casa Limone in the city. In late summer 2021, MCHG will re-open the beloved Atlantic Grill in New York’s Lincoln Square after acquiring it from Laundry’s Group. Under Chef Antonio’s guidance, the interior will be redesigned and the menu updated to bring the depths of the deep blue sea to 65th Street by celebrating the best of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Monte Carlo Hospitality Group also has plans to increase its presence in New York in 2022 with the opening of Rampoldi NYC and Monte-Carlo Patisserie. Reflecting the refinement and style of Rampoldi, Monte-Carlo Patisserie is a café and pastry shop with an elegant French patisserie and a decadent Italian pasticceria that will offer a full-service restaurant experience alongside as a shop to pick up fresh bread and sweet treats.
At Casa Limone in New York City, the Kir Italiano is an elegant, bubbly cocktail, made with Prosecco, lemon juice, simple syrup, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, and Crème Yvette—a fragrant liqueur made with parma violet petals, blackberries, red raspberries, wild strawberries and cassis, honey, orange peel and vanilla.

Monte Carlo Hospitality Group (MCHG) is a collection of distinctive restaurants and culinary experiences rooted in the warmth and excellence of Mediterranean hospitality and influenced by the time-honored history of luxury hospitality in Monaco. MCHG restaurants aim to offer unforgettable gastronomic experiences that delight the palate while serving as a backdrop for a quick breakfast, lunch with colleagues, cocktails with friends, dinner with family, or celebrating one of life’s many memorable moments. The group’s heart is the famed Rampoldi restaurant, which opened in 1946 and is one of the oldest and most recognized institutions in Monte Carlo. Since its opening, Rampoldi has been recommended by almost every prestigious news and media outlet as a “must visit” on trips to the Côte d’Azur.
Rampoldi opened La Table d’Antonio Salvatore in an intimate setting situated just underneath the main restaurant with a tasting menu from MCHG Chef/Partner Antonio Salvatore. In January 2021, the new restaurant received its first Michelin star. Fostering warm connections between New York and Monaco that developed many years ago after the famous actress became Princess Grace of Monaco and mother of Prince Albert II, the current Sovereign of the Principality of Monaco, MCHG will expand its footprint for the first time to New York.
In the summer of 2021, just steps from Rockefeller Center, the group will open Casa Limone, a casual, elegant Italian restaurant inspired by the Italian South with New York influences, guided by Michelin-starred Chef Antonio Salvatore in his North American debut. Later in 2021, MCHG will re-open the beloved Atlantic Grill in New York’s Lincoln Square after acquiring it from Laundry’s Group. Space will be redesigned and the menu updated, under Chef Antonio’s guidance, to bring the depths of the deep blue sea to 65th Street by celebrating the best of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Monte Carlo Hospitality Group also has plans to increase its presence in New York in 2022 with the opening of Rampoldi NYC and Monte-Carlo Patisserie. Reflecting the refinement and style of Rampoldi, Monte-Carlo Patisserie is a café and pastry shop with an elegant French patisserie and a decadent Italian pasticceria that will offer a full-service restaurant experience alongside as a shop to pick up fresh bread and sweet treats.
