Wayfarer TV exclusive: inside Ducasse’s top restaurant in the world

by James Wilkinson

Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée in Paris was named the 16th best restaurant in the world during June for good reason because this eatery is spectacular both in design and cuisine.

Here you’ll be delighted by both the dining room inside the luxurious Plaza Athénée – where Swarovski crystal chandeliers give the room its epic sparkle – and by the menu that’s entirely vegetable and seafood focused.

In an exclusive segment on WAYFARER, host James Gregory Wilkinson goes into Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée and speaks to General Manager, Denis Courtiade, to find out why this restaurant has to be on top of your Paris dining list.
