Le Cinq at Four Seasons Paris gets receives top rating

Four Seasons Paris resturant gets three Michelin stars

PARIS, April 20, 2016

Le Cinq, the classic French restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, has been awarded three stars in the 2016 edition of the prestigious Michelin Guide.

The announcement makes the Four Seasons Hotel George V the only hotel in Paris to receive both three Michelin stars and the Gault Millau 19 points/5 toques simultaneously.

The Michelin Guide is the oldest European hotel and restaurant reference guide which awards Michelin stars for excellence to a select few establishments. It is considered today the ultimate gastronomic award focusing on ingredients, technique, exceptional flavors, and overall memorable experience. A three-Michelin-star award means that a restaurant offers “exceptional cuisine” and is “worth a special journey”.  

Gault Millau evaluates all of the above with a greater focus on innovation and creativity and ratings on a scale of 1 to 20 and 1 to 5 toques. Achieving the highest scores on both of these awards confirms that Le Cinq offers the ultimate restaurant experience by providing exceptional dining with an innovative culinary flair.

Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud, chairman of Kingdom Holding Company (KHC) which owns 100 per cent consideration in the Hotel George V said: “This award serves as further confirmation of the Four Seasons Hotel George V’s undisputed leadership position in the luxury hotel sector worldwide.”

The three-Michelin-star Le Cinq is an exquisite dining room boasting beautiful views of the Four Seasons Hotel George V courtyard. Chef Christian Le Squer took the helm in the kitchens of the George V in October 2014, bringing 12 consecutive years of three-Michelin-star French haute cuisine. He created a new signature menu for Le Cinq that blends technical expertise with the pleasure of sharing and dialogue.

Restaurant director Eric Beaumard is widely acknowledged as one of the best in the business and has won a string of titles during his 20-year career, including Best Sommelier in Europe in 1994, and was named Sommelier of the Year by his peers in Le Chef magazine in 2003.

Sarmad Zok, chairman and CEO of Kingdom Hotel Investments, said: “We are very proud of the Four Seasons Hotel George V management team, under the leadership of general manager José Silva, who ensured that Le Cinq received its three-Michelin-star rating.” - TradeArabia News Service
