About Le George
Opened in October 2015, Le George offers a light and modern Mediterranean-style cuisine, taking guests on a journey between the French Riviera and northern Italy. Designed for sharing, dishes are balanced and healthy, bursting with flavour and freshness. The cuisine is tailor-made to be enjoyed in the timelessly chic and relaxed space by famed designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. Its modern influences and distinctly Parisian vibe makes it a convivial Michelin-Starred restaurant.
Simone Zanoni became Chef of Le George in September 2016, after spending eight years as chef at three Michelin Star restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London, and two Michelin Star restaurant Gordon Ramsay au Trianon in Versailles. Zanoni has infused the highly popular menu at Le George with his own personal influences and inspirations, identifying distinctive Mediterranean flavours and instilling a sense of place with each dish.
