A creamy Soufflé de Homard Plaza Athénée with lobster and cheese served from atop a gleaming silver tray – that’s happiness on a plate that harkens back to the halcyon days of the Hôtel Plaza Athenee in Paris.

Whenever I enter the Grand Dining Room, a sense of serenity overcomes me. My husband and I love the specialty restaurants, but there’s something timeless and classic about the Grand Dining Room that we always look forward to. We feel at home there. The staff welcomes us, knows us by name and so the night begins, under the sparkling chandelier.

In the words of culinary legend Paul Bocuse, “Qu’il est difficile de faire simple.” That it is difficult to make simple. With cooking, the most difficult task is always to prepare something simple exquisitely. Simplicity requires great ingredients and great talent. Since you must always start with the ingredients for excellent results, on board our ships we continuously focus on sourcing high-quality artisanal ingredients.
