“To do a Burberry: meaning to successfully revive a famous but moribund heritage name.”
I’m killing time before lunch at Le Castelroc restaurant on The Rock with the latest copy of Vogue magazine as Alexandra Schulman’s prescient words jump out at me. I have grabbed an outdoor table beside a pretty stone folly to best admire the picture-perfect views: I gaze on one side past cannon-ball pyramids towards the Princely Palace and on the other side down the rocky escarpment towards the sea. No other restaurant in Monaco can rival this location.
Run by the Bonafède family since 1953, Le Castelroc restaurant is synonymous with Monaco heritage. Francis Bonafède is the Godfather of Monegasque cuisine. He ran by the Monegasque motto “cun de pan e de vin se po invita u vizin” (With bread and wine, you can invite your neighbour to dine). His legendary Stockfish stew recipe has helped to keep four generations of Bonafède restaurateurs in business.
