Double-Michelin-starred chef Christian Sinicropi has presided over this theater of fine dining—also thoroughly renovated in early 2018—for more than a decade. His level of innovation knows no bounds. Think algae lollipops, flavored smoke, and herb perfume. Guests are greeted at the table by the man himself, then taken on an intensely seasonal 5- to 10-course gastronomic journey. Sinicropi not only creates his own quirky ceramic tableware, he also serves the Cannes Film Festival jury a special set dinner each spring. Spellbinding dishes created for recent festival presidents, like Tim Burton and Woody Allen, can be sampled from the menu. Unforgettable.
