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.

Chefs' Profile

Philippe Marc

After learning his craft in a number of 3-star restaurants, Philippe Marc began working in the kitchens of luxury hotels, travelling the length and breadth of South-Eastern France and working his magic in such outstanding hotels as the Vista Palace in Roquebrune, the Don César in Antibes and the Hôtel de Paris in Monte Carlo where he met Alain Ducasse. He then left the hotel sector for several years, instead heading up a family restaurant in Lyon, before coming to Paris where he took over the management of the kitchen in a small restaurant in the Latin Quarter that quickly became a huge success. It was then that the man from Jura again met up with Alain Ducasse. Since 2000, Philippe Marc has been the chef for the Relais Plaza, the Plaza Athénée’s chic grill-room, as well as catering for functions held at the hotel and providing the meals served by Relais Plaza.
