Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée

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 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.

ORIGINAL

The art and beauty of naturalness

Here we will introduce you to great produce. Locally sourced and seasonally relevant. Kind to the planet around us. Sustainable fishing, rediscovered grains, exclusively grown vegetables from the queen’s garden at the Château de Versailles. This is healthy and natural food, prepared to perfection.

CUISINE

In tune with nature

Our cuisine interprets the concept of ‘nature’s generosity’ by celebrating the trilogy of fish, vegetables and cereal. A diet more in tune with nature and better for your health.

Chefs' Profile

Alain Ducasse

Over thirty years Alain Ducasse has developed his unique expertise in gourmet cuisine, and is now at the helm of 30 restaurants worldwide (including three with three Michelin stars) and a collection of independent hotels. His approach is founded on two main desires: to share his passion for good food and to pass on his exceptional culinary knowledge. It’s this inquisitive nature and determination which create the extraordinary dining experiences at Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée.

Executive Chef

Romain Meder

Executive chef Romain Meder first trained in France before embarking on an adventure to discover new cuisines from around the world. On returning to Paris, he was quickly noticed by Alain Ducasse, who brought him to Hôtel Plaza Athénée as chef-de-partie, then sous-chef and finally as the head chef at La Cour Jardin. In early 2014, Meder and Ducasse together planned the reopening of the restaurant, and Meder became the new executive chef.

DESIGN

An experience for the senses

To reflect the purity of our menu, the designers, Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku, have chosen to highlight the authentic nature of their materials and the craftsmen who create with them. Huge, elegant silver bells, echoing the service cloches of the last century, reflect the deconstructed crystal drops of the chandeliers. The raw oak wooden tables are beautifully unadorned. Enjoy simply being in this stunning room. Savour its design and humour as you will the food.
