MC 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 – MC 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 opened in June 2021 Casa Limone in the NY city. In late summer 2022, MCHG re-opened the beloved Atlantic Grill in New York’s Lincoln Square after acquiring it from Laundry’s Group. Under Chef Antonio’s guidance, the interior 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. MC Hospitality Group also has plans to increase its presence in New York in 2023 with the opening of Rampoldi NYC and
R-Patisserie De Monte-Carlo. Reflecting the refinement and style of Rampoldi,
R-Patisserie is a 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.

MC Hospitality Group from Monte Carlo (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.
In an intimate and cured setting, MCHG opened La Table d’Antonio Salvatore: situated just
underneath the main restaurant in the former cigar cave, it offers a fine dining tasting menu
arranged by Executive Chef and 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, in 2021 MCHG started
expanding its footprint to New York, for the first time.
MCHG debuted in North America in the summer of 2021 when, just few steps from Rockefeller
Center, the group opened Casa Limone: a casual, elegant Italian restaurant inspired by the Italian
South with New York influences, under the guidance of MICHELIN-starred Chef Antonio Salvatore.
Later in 2021, MCHG re-opened Atlantic Grill, an historic restaurant in Lincoln Square beloved by
New Yorkers. Its space has been redesigned and the menu updated by Chef Salvatore to bring
together the freshness of Mediterranean Sea with the wildness of the Atlantic Ocean, bridging
chef’s origins with the hosting city’s traditions.
Opened in September 2023, Rampoldi New York marks another step and goal in MCHG expansion
in the U.S.: twin restaurant of its Monegasque counterpart, it brings the lightness of Côte d’Azur
marine breeze in the bustling Big Apple. The restaurant also hosts R-Patisserie De Monte-Carlo: a
Rampoldi-style inspired café and pastry shop that combines delicate French patisserie techniques
with Italian tasty Pasticceria flavors, in a place where delicious desserts and baked goods can be
