Reflets par Pierre GagnaireGourmet seasonal French cuisine by three-starred Michelin chef Pierre Gagnaire
Upon entering the sumptuous interior of Reflets par Pierre Gagnaire, one can easily imagine why Monica Bellucci, Chantal Thomas and an impressive smattering of Heads of State, feel completely at home there. The regal, two-inch thick plush purple carpet and velvet chairs give a palatial feel to the dining space, while charmingly pretty French chandeliers tinkle and glitter overhead. Created by leading French designer Christian Ghion, this restaurant isn’t afraid of its dazzling interior overwhelming the creations of the kitchens – and with good reason. Reflets pa Pierre Gagnaire is, after all, headed up by the legendary three-starred Michelin chef of the same name and has been recognized internationally as one of the world’s top 100 restaurants. The cuisine is French, but not a form of Gallic gastronomy one is used to seeing on a daily basis. Delicate gems of truffle butter and miniscule but perfectly formed fluffy white rolls are prequels to a menu of carefully selected seasonal treasures. There are no signature dishes, as Pierre Gagnaire only uses the freshest ingredients that are in season, from sources all over the world, so dishes change on a regular basis. Perfect for the ultimate gastronomic indulgence, this is a restaurant where food is not only love, but art as well.
