Dining & skating: the pop-up menu at Plaza Athénée Paris

Paris hotel Plaza Athénée launches pop-up menu on miniature skating rink

During the winter season Parisian Plaza Athénée’s Garden Courtyard is covered in ice to create an ice rink of almost 100 square metres. The ice rink gives children a safe place to skate (with an instructor who can even give them some tuition) while their parents enjoy the new pop-up winter menu dubbed “Bancs d’Hiver,” or Banks of Winter.

The multi-course meal themed around seasonal winter ingredients includes dishes like cream of chestnut soup, roasted pears, with cream and Savoie biscuits, and raclette, a traditional, hearty French dish that involves melting cheese over boiled potatoes, ham and pickles.

The “Bancs d’Hiver” menu is priced at €120. It will be served between February 28 and March 10 and will be prepared by the same team that works with chef Alain Ducasse.
