Proclaiming himself a “Gourmand,” Christian Dior cultivated his taste for the culinary arts with finesse, offering his palate – and his guests’ – only the best. In the heart of 30 Montaigne, the Restaurant, affectionately named Monsieur Dior, embodies the French art of living, driven by Jean Imbert, whose refined, generous creativity combines simplicity with elegance. The French chef, accompanied by his faithful collaborator Anthony Clémot, drew from the heritage and history of the House to develop each menu. The cuisine is enhanced by exclusive Dior Maison collections dedicated to the arts of the table, enhancing classic dishes from the founding couturier’s favorite recipes, notably those revealed in the book La Cuisine cousu-main, alongside original dishes inspired by the Dior universe. A multi-faceted awakening of the senses, further heightened by a series of original works of art, such as a portrait by René Bouché entitled Christian Dior à table, an immense pictorial composition by Guy Limone, and an audacious Claudia Wieser mirror.
