Le Relais Plaza, the famous Art Deco restaurant is starting a new chapter in its history, under the leadership of chef Jean Imbert.
A unique atmosphere
Since its grand opening on December 30, 1936, Le Relais Plaza has remained a must-see in Paris. inspired by the Normandy liner, the restaurant has a unique atmosphere for a cuisine that plays the card of fine tradition, between “grandma’s cuisine” dear to Jean Imbert (sea bream gratin, stuffed tomato and pilaf rice) and classics that have made the reputation of the famous art deco address. Imagine the parties, the room filled with fashion designers and musicians of the time, crowding around the grand piano. Even today, it is one of the highlights of Avenue Montaigne.
An immersion in the Roaring Twenties
In terms of decor, the restaurant immerses you in one of the last Art Deco dining rooms in the city, faithful to the artistic ferment that raged during the Roaring Twenties. Witness the original fresco of Diana the Huntress, the large chandelier and the stained glass window with the signs of the zodiac by Lalique. In the kitchen, Jean Imbert is inspired by three principles: authenticity, taste and simplicity to offer the best of brasserie cuisine, resolutely French, to his table. The chef relies on good products from producers whose work he appreciates (Jacky Mercier for tomatoes, salads from the Ferme du Perche, etc.). To avoid routine and make you want to come back regularly, the brasserie offers a weekly lunch and dinner. There are dishes such as mussels from Mont-Saint-Michel accompanied by straw potatoes on Fridays or brioche sausage on Thursdays…
