The entrance to the Restaurant Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée

On a trip to Paris, our team revisited the famed Alain Ducasse at the Plaza Athénée Hotel. They were delighted. The service was warm, the dishes were outstanding and the overall experience was festive and elegant.

“Alain Ducasse lays out the broad strokes. It’s up to me to fill in the lines,” said Chef Christophe Moret, who apprenticed at the Louis XV-Alain Ducasse in Monaco, became sous-chef at 59 Poincaré, then chef at Spoon food & wine in Paris.
