When Chef Stéphanie Le Quellec earned her 1 Michelin star in 2014, the newly opened gastronomic restaurant, La Scéne, was even more thrilled with their new hire. One of only a handful of Michelin-starred female chefs in France, this young woman's style of passion, fun and grace reflected in her cuisine was learned under two outstanding mentors: Philippe Legendre of George V and then Philippe Jourdin of Terre Blanche. The concept of this restaurant is to put the chef and her team at center stage, literally. The kitchen is the main focal point of the elegant wood and marble dining room which faces out onto the historical landmark mosaics in the courtyard for which the property is famous. A firm believer in using products at the height of their most flavorful, you will find creative dishes here that make for exquisitely fine lunch and dinner dining
- Fine Dining: "The chef's southern France origins delicately flavor any one of her dishes with her signature "sophisticated simplicity." For dessert: the "vanilla in five layers" by pastry chef Yann Couvreur. The way the restaurant is arranged, with the open kitchen in the middle, truly makes this a theater of fine dining."
- Best for Fine Dining Because: A fine young chef who just earned her first Michelin star last year, Stéphanie Le Quellec is a Parisian chef to watch.
