Paris is a gourmet’s paradise, sure – but how about staying in a luxury Parisian hotel that is home to three gourmet restaurants? Now that’s a first! Baroque Access finds out all about the three restaurants at Four Seasons Hotel George V, home to five Michelin stars in total
Not only is the Four Seasons Hotel George V one of Paris’ most luxurious hotels, it’s also the first hotel in Europe to have three Michelin-starred restaurants all under one roof. We’re talking about Le Cinq, Le George and L’Orangerie, the three fine dining restaurants at the hotel, which between them have garnered five coveted Michelin stars. That’s some accolade – and the Four Seasons George V is some stunning gourmet destination!
This exquisite hotel is located in Paris’ Golden Triangle, set in a beautiful eight-story Art Deco building built in 1928. It’s situated 2km from the Eiffel Tower close to St Germain-des-Prés, with its high-fashion boutiques and cafes. The 244 exquisite rooms and suites are all decorated to remind guests of luxurious Parisian apartments, and many offer terraces with stunning city views. Facilities include interactive TV, a DVD player, library and WiFi access.
The restaurants, of course, are the highlight of a stay here… Le Cinq boasts three Michelin stars, while both Le George and L’Orangerie have one Michelin star each. This is according to the 2017 Michelin Guide. Le Cinq, which offers haute cuisine at its finest, was awarded three Michelin stars last year for the second year in a row and the other two restaurants received one Michelin star each for the first time.
Le Cinq offers spectacular views of the hotel’s marble courtyard. The three-Michelin starred restaurant features an exquisite grey and gold dining room with bespoke tablecloths, china and silver. Its menus draw on classic French culinary techniques but also feature newer, lighter styles of cooking. All dishes are prepared using the freshest regional ingredients.
Le George offers a light, modern Mediterranean-style menu, with dishes designed for sharing. In addition, many of the dishes are available in half portions and the cuisine is balanced and healthy, full of flavor and freshness. The restaurant offers a timelessly chic and relaxed setting and its highlights are the beautiful vaulted ceiling and the large windows that look onto the hotel’s marble courtyard.
The final restaurant, L’Orangerie is designed as a conservatory and offers guests an intimate atmosphere overlooking the courtyard. Located under a 7-meter-high glass and steel structure, it offers traditional French contemporary cuisine that is both elegant and refined.
The hotel also features Le Bar, which offers cocktails and light meals.
