Cafe de Paris Opens in Galaxy Macau

Galaxy Entertainment is building on its relationship with Monaco casino company Societe des Bains de Mer to bring a French bistro brand to its Galaxy Macau resort, building on Macau’s culinary repertoire.

The Macau operator has already teamed with Societe des Bains de Mer to bid for a license in Japan.

It’s the first foray into Asia for the Cafe de Paris brand, which promises to provide an authentic French cafe experience, while serving a range of French and Asian specialities.

“By introducing the flagship café of one of the world’s most celebrated hospitality brands from Monaco to Macau, locals and visitors will be spoilt for choice at Galaxy’s well-established café society,” Roger Lienhard, senior vice president of hospitality at Galaxy Macau said in a press release.

As well as Asian fare, such as Yangzhou fried rice, the cafe will serve traditional bistro fare, such as mussels in white wine and trout meuniere.

Macau is increasingly positioning itself as a center for gastronomy, bringing in some of the world’s most renowned chefs and a wide variety of food and beverage options for visitors.

SJM Holding’s Grand Lisboa has seven Michelin stars, while one of the fastest rising hotspots is the Mizumi at Wynn Macau, which rose to a two-star ranking out of nowhere in 2017 under chef-d’oeuvre Tsutomu Shimamiya, master of sushi, and his disciple Hideki Fujikawa, master sushi chef. (AGB)
