Following the announcement of the 2017 Michelin Guide, the restaurants Le Cinq, Le George and L’Orangerie at the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris have been collectively crowned with a total of five Michelin stars, making it the first luxury Hotel in Europe with three Michelin-starred restaurants.

Le George and L’Orangerie have both been awarded their first Michelin star in the latest edition of the Michelin Guide and join the Hotel’s French haute cuisine restaurant, Le Cinq, which retains the highest accolade of three Michelin stars for the second consecutive year.

Christian Le Squer comments: "The third Michelin star for Le Cinq for the second consecutive year rewards the very essence of today’s cuisine and we strive to continuously evolve our style and techniques to instill an emotional connection with our guests."

The style and excellence of Le Cinq takes me back to my first visit to Paris in the 60s when I experienced true French elegance and culinary delights at the George V. The ambiance and exquisite accouterments that are the lovely visual props for beyond superb gastonome presentations in Le Cinq are a continuation of opulent dining experiences enjoyed in the opulent French city for centuries. At breakfast guests revel in the amazing touch of a petit crème brulet served. It is difficult to imagine a more charming way to start a day in Paris.

José Silva, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel George V stated “I have always had the highest culinary aspirations for our team who have worked to continuously innovate and exceed our guests’ expectations. I believe the five Michelin stars awarded are a testament to this commitment to excellence brought to life by our Chefs, Christian Le Squer, Simone Zanoni, David Bizet and their teams. We are honoured to be the first Hotel in Europe to hold this designation and look forward to many more years of culinary excellence.” Showcasing the cuisine of three Chefs, each with their own individual identities, diverse talents and distinctive styles, the Four Seasons Hotel George V offers guests an unprecedented culinary experience under the same roof, and is now indisputably the leading gourmet address of the capital.

Chef Simone Zanoni adds: "After a long career in different Michelin starred restaurants, I think I have finally found my place at the George where the light and convivial cuisine meets a buzzing and trendy ambiance. I believe this Michelin star follows the evolution of our guests’ desire for a friendlier and more informal dining experience with exceptional flavors."

David Bizet concludes: "During my 17 years in Le Cinq's kitchens, I have forged a passion for excellence and it is with the same quest for perfection that I have worked on L’Orangerie’s menu. The Michelin star received today, just eight months following our opening, is a reward that honours the tireless work of our teams to create dishes that pay homage to nature and the changing seasons."


L'Orangerie, George V, Paris

The L'Orangerie is the first thing guests see when walking from the lobby to go to their guest room. The open atrium style venue is exquisite, always filled with the colorful artistic flower arrangements that Four Seasons is known for. On my last visit it was filled with amazing Iris arrangements, and the contrast of the blue-purple flowers and the stark white of the venue was spectacular. This bright open dining venue is the place to be seen in Paris, and is always filled with chic Parisians and travelers. The menu offers the finest in beautiful French cuisine.

I fell in love with the Four Seasons Hotel George V many years ago and it is a pleasure to see this iconic property continue to experience ongoing renewal with style and grace, offering guests a place to remember the past with a pleasurable view on the future. I'm looking forward to my next visit to the 'city of lights' and yet another memorable stay at the Four Seasons George V. It's good to remember that advance reservations are required at these star venues in Paris.
