The talk of the town in Paris this week is the newly-opened eatery at the Four Seasons Hotel George V. Complementing the two existing restaurants—the Michelin two-starred Le Cinq and La Galerie—Le George serves light Mediterranean-style cuisine that’s designed for sharing. The official website describes “a convivial, gastronomic experience, taking guests on a journey between the French Riviera and northern Italy.”
Celebrated interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon decorated the restaurant, which is located inside a former hotel ballroom and has views over the marble courtyard. In spring 2016, Le George will unveil L’Orangerie, a glass-enclosed patio space. In the kitchen is Chef Marco Garfagnini from Carrara, Tuscany—he was named Young Italian Chef of the Year 2005 by the Gambero Rosso guide.
Lunch menus are priced from 65 euros; dishes are also available a la carte, and by the half portion. Dishes include Saffron risotto; Ravioli Del Plin with black truffle and parmesan cream; Roasted sole with basil and vinegar sauce; Corsican mountain goat glazed with Banyuls wine; and Free-range salt-crusted chicken.
