RESTAURANTS & BARS
For many Parisians, La Galerie is shorthand for pure pleasure. The ideal spot for breakfast, a light lunch, spontaneous pre-dinner drinks or our delicious afternoon tea.
The place to be
In the heart of the hotel on the renowned avenue Montaigne, Hôtel Plaza Athénée has long attracted a fashionable crowd to La Galerie. This determinedly chic space brims with calm elegance, happily passing the day under the gentle melodies of harps and soft conversation.
Bringing modernity to a landmark
Bruno Moinard was entrusted with the careful renovation of La Galerie. Focusing on creating a link between this sophisticated space and the courtyard beyond the window, he blended light and decoration to create the sensation of sunshine playing across the elegant furniture and mosaic floor.
La Galerie restaurant will reopen its doors on September 1, for lunch.
After honing his craft in a number of three-star restaurants, Philippe Marc entered the world of luxury hotels, travelling the length and breadth of South East France, where he met Alain Ducasse. After heading up a family restaurant in Lyon, Marc came to Paris to manage a small, yet hugely successful restaurant in the Latin quarter. It then that he was reunited with Ducasse, who in 2000 named him chef at Le Relais Plaza and head of event catering for the hotel.
Executive pastry chef, Angelo Musa, is a winner of the World Pastry Chef award and 2007 winner of ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’. With long standing experience in both France and other countries, Angelo is able to add his own creative and distinctive stamp to our menus. His watch word is balance – ensuring flavours blend delicately with one another, textures create a variety of sensations on the palate, and always having a balance of sweet and sharp. He’s also a fan of giving classic patisserie a new twists. Sample our famous afternoon tea ‘Goûter’ and see for yourself.
