Le George: the young and sophisticated brother of Le Cinq

For those who follow me here or in my social networks know already I love visiting new restaurants, trying new brunchs, coffee shops, hotels …. That sensation of new, fresh and motivated service, menus full of probabilities, new mixtures of ingredients, all is fascinating!
So I took my time to go to Le George, the newly opened restaurant of Four Seasons George V, and my experience was more than interessant: it was intense, relaxing, rich in flavors.

With an exciting and Mediterranean cuisine headed by Italian chef Marco Garfagnini, best 2005 young chef by Gambero Rosso and listed in Michelin guide since 1999, the restaurant, intended and announced as the young alternative to Le Cinq restaurant, run by chef Christian Le Squer.

The proposed menu is cool: the idea here is « partager », ie, main courses and desserts are made to share. But do not think you’ll find here burgers and fries: the refinement and exquise go hand in hand here!  The service is truly exceptional: the idea is to feel at home as you were in your living room, but in a sophisticated and special place. Is there anything better than that?

To finish in style (after all, I have an appreciation by sweets), a trio of desserts in half-portions: Pomme semi-confite au gingembre, mascarpone crème, vanille glace, Crème Brulée au fromage, mandarine sorbet and Dessert au caramel beurre salé, duly completed with coffee & Calvados.

The food is exceptional? Yes. The welcome and service are good? Excellent, as, without being too much, not too little.
