Four Seasons Hotel George V Gastronomic revolution
This year, one of the world’s finest palace hotels, the Four Seasons Hotel George V has introduced two new restaurants: Le George and L’Orangerie. Joining the three-Michelin-star Le Cinq by Christian Le Squer and La Galerie, these new gems of the Parisian food scene have transformed the hotel into a gastronomic destination.
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 is a genuine jewel in the heart of Paris’s Golden Triangle. The 244 rooms and luxury top suites – including five new ones restyled by Pierre-Yves Rochon –, the three-Michelin-star restaurant Le Cinq 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 reception 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 Hotel George V always enjoy a remarkable level of service and accommodation, the restaurants aren’t short of a star or three either. The brilliant Christian Le Squer, former chef of the Pavillon Ledoyen joined the hotel a year and a half ago. In its 2016 edition, the Guide Michelin had awarded Le Cinq’s creative, gourmet cuisine three stars, the ultimate recognition for a French chef! The majestic dining room decorated by Jeff Leatham with floral sculptures is managed by 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. The 38-year-old chef David Bizet 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. In June 2016 he was awarded chef of the brand new L’Orangerie an exclusive restaurant opened on the right side of la Cour de marbre in one of the two magnificient modern conservatories. His creativeness and talent have driven David Bizet in the galaxy of famous Parisian chefs. This restaurant complete the hotel gourmet offer that was strengthened last year with the opening of the Le George dedicated to Mediterranean cuisine. With small plates to share in a casual chic atmosphere, this restaurant has made a sensational debut with demanding Parisian and international guests who are looking for a relaxing dining experience but still with an impeccable service. The Palace of the avenue George-V has now five restaurants in total including its celebrated bar where food is served throughout the day. Staying at the Four Seasons Hotel 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. n
