Mada One is an innovative new culinary concept meticulously thought-out by chef Marcel Ravin.This place, opening in early March in the heart of the One Monte-Carlo district, taked its name from a contraction of “Madame”, a reference to the women of the area, and the old name or Martinique, “Madininia”.
The chef has developed a brand new style of cuisine for this chic dine-in/take-out spot, inspired by his Caribbean roots and specially adapted for his Monegasque and international customers. Everything from the logo to the aprons and tableware is consistent with Marcel Ravin’s philosophy and concept. “The idea is to offer customers high quality dishes they can order quickly to eat in or take away. We pushed the concept to the point where we serve diners on bento trays (meal trays served in business class), so everything has been designed to make life easier for our customers, whether it’s in terms of eating or travelling!”
Signature dishes include an innovative new cake called “Le Munegu”, a fusion of brioche and panettone redolent of Monaco and the Mediterranean. A delicatessen will sell “souvenir” items and ingredients used in the kitchen. “We have even designed small containers for travelers to take on board in their cabin luggage”, says the Michelin-starred chef. Dine-in customers at Mada One can also enjoy healthy breakfasts, lunches, afternoon and pre-dinner snacks. “The time between 5.30-8.00pm is important, and we’ve called it l’apéro-thérapie (“aperitif-therapy”). After gastronomy and bistronomy, explain Marcel Ravin, “it’s time to try the snackonomy”.
