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 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 learning his craft in a number of three-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 met up again with Alain Ducasse. Since 2000, Philippe Marc has been the chef for Le Relais Plaza, Hôtel Plaza Athénée’s chic brasserie, as well as catering for functions held at the hotel and providing the meals served by Le Relais Plaza.
