Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée
Pricy even by Paris standards, Alain Ducasse's flagship restaurant at the ritzy Hotel Plaza Athenee marries haute cuisine with designer decor. Pierre Tachon table art adorns a swanky dining space backed by a series of exquisitely embroidered screens. Recently celebrating its 10-year anniversary at the Hotel Plaza Athenee, the restaurant has embraced a simpler menu favoring fewer ingredients and less salt and fat. Signature dishes range from the inventive to the traditional, running the gamut from hot partridge pie and cock pie to sumptuous spins on lobster and duckling.
