ALAIN DU­CASSE’S GEM IN PARIS

World Travel Magazine - - Just In - RACHEL OWENS

En­ter­ing Alain Du­casse au Plaza Athénée, you are taken into a world of shim­mer­ing lights, gen­tle curves, and ex­quis­ite din­ing. Af­ter months of re­fur­bish­ment, this Miche­lin star restau­rant has what all guests of fine-din­ing es­tab­lish­ments ex­pect, and a few new twists thanks to de­sign­ers Pa­trick Jouin and San­jit Manku. You can ap­pre­ci­ate both art and food in one place, as one. From the pieces of art­work found in flea markets, or de­signed by up and com­ing artists, your sur­round­ings are, in­deed, marvellous.

Not only is the presentation enough of a rea­son to visit, but its Haute Cuisine speaks of the fu­ture, rather than the past. Se­lect your wine by gen­er­a­tion, all the way to 55 years. En­joy meals that are cre­ated with health and orig­i­nal­ity in mind, hum­ble, yet so­phis­ti­cated. Chef, Ro­main Meder, is the artist work­ing along­side Alain Du­casse.

It is no sur­prise that Alain Du­casse au Plaza Athénée is part of the Dorch­ester Col­lec­tion. This Parisian in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the group’s vi­sion is some­thing spe­cial to behold. By vis­it­ing Alain Du­casse au Plaza Athénée, not only will you en­joy a sub­lime ex­pe­ri­ence, but you will be part of a care­fully con­structed piece of liv­ing art. dorch­estercol­lec­tion.com
