The place to be

The avenue Montaigne address bathed in golden charm. A Parisian institution since 1936 and still drawing the world’s ‘beau monde’ with the power of a magnetic field. Le Relais Plaza offers a cocktail of elegance that great names the world over find utterly intoxicating.

The place to be
The ship of light

The ship of light

Le Relais Plaza’s design was modelled on the restaurant onboard the SS Normandie, ‘the ship of light’ whose lavish Art deco style lent her the title of the greatest of ocean liners. She was also a floating promotion for the sophisticated French cuisine of the period.

Chef's profile

Philippe Marc

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.
