This summer 2020, the only restaurant to reopen at the Le George V palace is chef Simone Zanoni’s starred restaurant Le George. This summer 2020, Le George is one of the very rare palace restaurants to open in Paris. As a matter of fact, L’Orangerie and Le Cinq restaurants, as well as the rooms of the hotel, remain closed until September 1, 2020.
And Dolce Vita is coming to starred-Le George restaurant. A sensory travel led by Italian chef Simone Zanoni.
“I am utterly happy and looking forward to reopening our gourmet table and providing our gest with a bit of this gentle lifestyle so dear to Italy. Since opportunities to travel the world remain limited, I want to make our guests travel through my plates: a sensory journey that will be the occasion to convey my love for Italy and the richness of its territory, without forgetting the spirit of sharing we would really like to reinvent today in many forms” chef Simone Zanoni comments.
On the occasion, the Parisian palace unveils four mouthwatering offers to meet the desires of each gastronome.
Note that for the offers on site, booking is mandatory since the access to the palace – by a small door and no longer the big one – depends on a list. At the entrance, temperature is checked. And the staff must wear facemasks, and tables will be spaced.
A gourmet Mediterranean-inspired experience in the chic and trendy atmosphere of Le George restaurant. Simone Zanoni unveils plates as sophisticated as tasty: crudos served in individual size, pomodoro soup, burrata, strawberries and gambereti from Sicily, candied tomato Tatin tart, cacio e pepe ice cream, or even bouillabaisse-inspired risotto and lemon. Available every day from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., and from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. The menu – like in many restaurants that are reopening – is shorter than usual, so is the wine and cocktail list.
The Cour de Marbre is turned for the summer 2020 into a haven of peace that shows the gentle Transalpine lifestyle the best. The perfect place to relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful terraces in Paris and celebrate the Italian terroir. The occasion to browse the beautiful wine list or enjoy some Spritz, Bellini or perhaps Negroni while nibbling on the starred plates by chef Zanoni. Available every day from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
For a starry walk, Le George team takes guests to the heart of the Italian gastronomy, in the magical and poetic setting of one of the greatest suites of the Palace. A custom-made menu on a private terrace with unobstructed views on the Eiffel Tower and the most beautiful monuments in town. Available between 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (€600/guest).
Last but not least, if you want to enjoy the Dolce Vita at home, chef Simone Zanoni reinterprets the Aperitivo. He has come up with a box to share celebrating the flavors that made his childhood: tomato focaccia by the palace’s bakers, pomodoro soup, smooth Stracciatella di mozzarella di bufala heart with pistachio and extra virgin oil, selection of Italian cold cuts, pesto and bread sticks, saffron-flavored candied tomato arancini, grilled vegetables with traditional extra Vecchio balsamic vinegar. Available on evenings from Wednesday to Sunday (€90).
