Four Seasons Hotel George V has announced that after just one year as Executive Chef at Le Cinq, Christian Le Squer has been awarded a third Michelin star in the 2016 Michelin Guide.
This prestigious award further exemplifies Le Squer’s unique approach to combining traditional French cuisine with brilliant modernity. Christian defines himself as a creator of flavours and composer of tastes. His memorable signature dishes provide diners with a refined culinary experience keeping in mind a strong sense of well being that is so important today. In addition to the prestigious third star in the 2016 Michelin Guide, Christian Le Squer was recently awarded an outstanding score of 19/20 and a 5th toque in the 2016 Gault et Millau for Le Cinq.
The Four Seasons Hotel George V is the only luxury palace in Paris to achieve this double distinction. Christian Le Squer comments: “I am delighted to have been awarded this third star – every fine Chef’s goal – for the magnificent Parisian luxury hotel that is Four Seasons Hotel George V. My thanks go naturally to my culinary brigade and the dining room team, who do a fabulous job every day alongside me, and to Eric Beaumard, renowned Director of the restaurant and past winner of Europe’s Best Sommelier. I’ve been reworking some of my signature dishes to satisfy a demanding clientele that’s always on the lookout for the detail that makes the difference; and I’ve been reinterpreting the conventional gastronomic codes.”
Jose Silva, Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel George V, adds: “I am proud of this third Michelin star. The arrival of Chef Christian Le Squer, triple-starred for the last twelve years, was key in the re-positioning of Le Cinq as one of the finest Parisian gourmet restaurants, and this third star confirms its legitimacy. I have high culinary aspirations for the Hotel. Our owner and the Four Seasons group have provided unwavering support in this quest, enabling me to develop a variety of restaurant offerings in terms of decor, menu and talent. We are the first luxury hotel to be working with three Chefs who bring distinct and highly individual culinary signatures in each of our three restaurants.” Boasting beautiful views of the Hotel’s courtyard, Le Cinq is an exquisite dining room, which has recently undergone a refurbishment, created and designed specifically for this legendary Hotel.
