Alain Ducasse’s iconic Rech restaurant, could only be enjoyed in France – until now. A new outpost of the eatery is open inside The Intercontinental Hotel and it is deliciously perfect in every way.
As a recent guest of the restaurant, I was instantly pleased and impressed with every detail of Rech. Why? Because everything from the food, service and decor is executed perfectly. Architect Marie Deroudilhe designed the space and Chef Stéphane Gortina leads the kitchen.
I was offered a stunning set menu, but the a-la-carté offerings are a viable option. A raw bar with marinated fish, shellfish and more is very tempting. Dishes like rock fish soup with saffron-gold caviar, squid, crustacean and shellfish ravioli, live blue lobster with seasonal vegetables, duck from Challans and more are hard to choose from.
Even the dessert menu makes an impact – my favorite being the confit and iced peach with champagne granité. Wow! Rech is undeniably perfect.
