Four Seasons George V's New Restaurant

11 November 2015

Words by AFP Relaxnews

The opulent Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris has opened a new restaurant featuring a lighter, healthier menu for the health-conscious, calorie-counting guest who shuns butter and cream-soaked French fare.

Unlike Le Cinq, the hotel’s flagship restaurant which holds two Michelin stars, its sibling restaurant Le George will serve a distinctly Mediterranean-inspired menu with an emphasis on fish and vegetables.

The move is a strategic one that aims to cater to the sophisticated, health-conscious Champs-Elysées visitor – models, actors, the general elite –  who may not permit themselves to indulge in Le Cinq’s decidedly heavier French fare of foie gras and butter-bathed lobster.

Helmed by Italian chef  Marco Garfagnini, the menu is designed for sharing, with dishes available in half portions.

Menu highlights include ricotta cheese tortelli lemon and fresh mint; sea bass with clam juice; and Dublin Bay prawn citrus and mustard sauce.

The restaurant will also serve freshly made pasta and risotto, prepared à la minute.

The opening of Le George is the latest luxury dining address to try and invigorate the gastronomic scene along the famous Champs-Elysées.

This month, iconic restaurant Le Fouquet, instantly recognizable by its red and gold awning and red carpet welcome, introduced a new modernized menu rewritten by another French institution, Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire.
