For Guy Martin, “our challenge and the goal of the Chairman of the Groupe ADP is to offer the best. Thanks to the unfailing support of the Areas teams, I have fulfilled my dream of letting my guests taste a cuisine prepared with love, using the finest ingredients. It was essential for us to respect the spirit of the Grand Véfour and the very special atmosphere of the Palais Royal. Our goal is to give pleasure and ensure the well-being of our guests in a comfortable, contemporary and friendly setting designed by India Mahdavi; a beautiful, collective adventure that has been rewarded.”
