One of the city’s finest palace hotels, George V is also renowned for its restaurants: the two-star Le Cinq, La Galerie and, soon, a Mediterranean-inspired eatery…
The Four Seasons Hotel George V redefines luxury in the City of Light. One of the best hotels in the world for different magazines and many customers, it is a genuine jewel in the heart of Paris’s Golden Triangle. The 244 rooms and luxury suites, the two-Michelin-star restaurant Le Cinq, the sublime spa and the quality of service, all contribute to its international renown, but there is also a clear feeling that the Four Seasons Hotel George V has the kind of soul that other establishments lack. The hotel maintains and develops both its prestige and its quality of welcome with professional, helpful staff who are keen to make the customer’s stay a memorable one. It is also second to none in offering its guests the chance to enjoy highly original experiences in Paris.
Although guests at the Four Seasons George V always enjoy a remarkable level of service and accommodation, its restaurants aren’t short of a star or two either. The brilliant Christian Le Squer, former chef of the Pavillon Ledoyen where he was awarded 3 Michelin star for 12 consecutive years, joined the hotel at the end of 2014. Within weeks, the Guide Michelin had awarded Le Cinq’s creative, gourmet cuisine two stars in its 2015 edition. What’s more, the majestic dining room decorated with floral sculptures by Jeff Leatham is managed by none other than the talented Eric Beaumard. Vice-champion of the World’s Best Sommelier competition in 1998, Beaumard has steadily built up a cellar of 50,000 bottles and 2,200 different wines. Then just when you thought the Four Seasons George V might simply sit back and enjoy its success,
David Bizet arrived last April. This 37-year-old chef offers a totally new culinary experience at La Galerie. His fresh and remarkably refined regional cuisine breaks the mold when it comes to classic hotel restaurant cuisine. This summer, why not sample his asparagus from the Lubéron with Kalamata olives or lamb cutlets with garlic, preserved lemons and fresh garden carrots? Alternatively, dine in the idyllic surroundings of the Cour de Marbre restaurant with its black and white check-pattern marble floor and floral décor. Very much a seasonal restaurant, it’s perfect for lunch, dinner or cocktails in warmer weather. Although this hotel on avenue George V has three restaurants in total – including its celebrated bar where food is served throughout the day – we were still thrilled to hear that a new Mediterranean-flavored restaurant is scheduled to open in the near future. Staying at the Four Seasons George V isn’t just about enjoying the many pleasures of a luxury Paris hotel. It’s also about having unique culinary experiences in the world capital of fine dining.
