A few weeks after the announcement of the end Alain Ducasse's tenure at the Plaza Athénée, the multi-starred chef has unveiled his upcoming plans. In an interview with France Info, Ducasse reveals more about his future restaurant, Sapid.
Sapid: Reasonably Priced, Vegetable-Led Cuisine
The chef, who had implemented the concept of 'Naturalité' or 'Naturalness' at Plaza Athénée alongside Romain Meder, will adopt the same guideline for Sapid, which will be located in eastern Paris. “The idea is now to take to the streets and feed people on an extremely tight bill, around 25 to 30 euros, as in a refectory,” explains Ducasse.
"We will be careful about the planet, with its scarce resources, of the men and women who cultivate, who fish, who harvest. It will be 95% vegetables. And animal protein will be an extra. There will be fish," he says, much like the chef's offering at his three-star restaurant on avenue Montaigne.
Fine Dining Lovers will of course keep you informed of the future opening.
This week, Ducasse also realised a childhood dream of inaugurating his first ice cream parlour: Manufacture de glace Alain Ducasse, at 38 rue de la Roquette in the 11th arrondissement of Paris.
