The terrace looks out onto a sunny and quiet street.
Today the venue of the Parisian intelligentsia, the Montalembert was established in 1926, at rue du Bac.
How many guest books would you need to tell all the great moments of the interwar period, and the great parties held in Saint-Germain of the fifties? Soon a centenarian, the hotel has, as it deserves, had a very gentle make-over. And today again, just as it should be, the guest book gets filled with ink, paying tribute to the chef, David Maroleau: “I am inspired by the kitchen of Jean Montagard and Michel Guérard…” These two great chefs, known for pioneering the healthy kitchen, aren’t the only models for the chef of the hotel Montalembert and of the Bel Ami, the other 5-star hotel of the Group B Signature at Saint-Germain. With a CV that speaks for itself: Four Seasons Miami, George V, Plazza Athénée, the Ritz in London as well as The Greenhouse on Berkeley Square, his kitchen is inventive and innovative. The menu displays dishes low in calories and acidulated compositions highlighting organic products. Enthusiastic about spelt, “the purest seed that exists”, the young chef often looks to Asia. His tartare with semi-cooked gambas, in thai fashion, with dashi lemongrass broth and koshihikari rice is worth the detour! The private room that can accommodate 10 people is often booked for business lunches, always solid value and first consensus for future negotiations!
