Tasty food alert! In Paris, the temple of gastronomy is back for a new start. Set a stone’s throw from the Champs-Elysées, Parisians and tourists can meet again with the prestigious restaurants of the famous George V palace. For this new start revolving around indulgence, the iconic location managed to reinvent itself for gourmets’ greatest joy.
Starting from September 8, 2021, the three-star restaurant Le Cinq is back. At the helm, we are delighted to reunite with chef Christian Le Squer who will serve fantastic committed cooking based on quality seasonal produces sourced by small and local producers and fish from sustainable fishing. Here, enjoy a culinary blend between the chef’s home Brittany and the Parisian lifestyle: perfect to extend the vacation vibe. Oenophiles are not left out since restaurant manager and World’s Vice-Best Sommelier Eric Beaumard teams up with Christian Le Squer for a tasting session packed with wonderful discoveries. Furthermore, at the Le George restaurant – where officiates Simone Zanoni – the new sommelier chef, Francesco Cosci, now works hard to make you taste the best of Italian wines.
One of the main events of this new start 2021 at the George V is the renewal of the Galerie concept paying tribute to the French terroir through a new culinary offer. In the middle of the setting and historic pieces from the 19th century, discover a genuine culinary museum telling you more about products and know-how that made the fame of France when it comes to gastronomy. A challenge taken up by chef Alan Taudon who manages to revisit classics and provides us with modern cooking filled with inventiveness.
Once again, the palace confirms their commitment since they also called in local and sustainable producers and vegetable farmers. French-style pasta shells, candied Île-de-France leek, beef parmentier and grilled blue lobster, you will enjoy a culinary experience as comforting as moving. The bonus? The hotel’s very talented pastry chef, Michael Bartocetti, signs a surprising menu revisiting French pastry classics such as the famous Mille-Feuilles and the timeless Paris-Brest.
The common thread is also to be find at the L’Orangerie where chef Alan Taudon unveils a new offer – still part of a committed and sustainable approach. But here, you shall expect the unexpected with this menu filled with inventiveness and boldness. This is a place likely to be stormed by avant-gardes willing to enjoy what will make tomorrow’s gastronomy. Foodies will enjoy culinary, technical and visual exploits including salt-crust jumbo shrimp, trompe-l’oeil tomato rigatoni likely to leave you speechless.
The asset? If you feel like it you can help and learn a great deal alongside the George V’s talents starting from this Fall. Two Sundays a month, cooking, baking and oenology classes will be provided in turns by the great names of the palace: Christian Le Squer, Alan Taudon, Michael Bartocetti, Eric Beaumard and Francesco Cosci will come in turns to make you discover their know-how.
We love it!
