The opulent Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée, Paris, FranceAfter several months of refurbishing, the Plaza Athénée hotel has reopened its doors and with it, the restaurant « Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée ». Share
Here, Alain Ducasse tells a personal and radical story, continuing the work he began twenty-five years ago. He represents the naturalness cuisine, inspired by the fish-vegetables-cereals trilogy, with the help of his chef of Romain Meder.
Healthier and more natural, more respectful of the Planet, it delivers a free and nearly instinctive interpretation of Haute Cuisine, revealing the produces’ original flavour, from the noble to the humble, all exceptional.
Denis Courtiade, the restaurant’s Manager, presents clients marks of attention that accompany them throughout the meal. He offers innovative, liberated gestures. Simple and authentic movements, building the meal into an experience that engages the entire body.
The dining room is a gem- designed by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku – where all is softness of curves, materials and contents. Everywhere is wonder in the remarkable quality of the pieces created with an absolute attention to every detail, a formidable representation of the craftsman’s expertise. The hand of Man at the service of Beauty transcending matter and form.
On the table, shapes from yesterday and today are joined in perfect unison. Precious materials cohabitate with the simpler objects in a collection of unique creations designed by Pierre Tachon or Shinichiro Ogata, by Rina Menardi, Gérard Crociani or Tina Frey.
Cutlery created in the 1970’s by Roger Tallon is exclusively reedited for the restaurant. Alain Ducasse himself discovered some pieces in flea markets. On the table and in the kitchen alike, crude and noble materials converge.
