Le Lucé – Le Nouveau Local
Located in the fabulous Hotel Château du Grand-Lucé in the Loire Valley, just south of Paris, Le Lucé is setting a new standard in haute cuisine with an elevated farm-to-table dining experience. The magnificent splendor and chic opulence of the recently renovated summer palace of Baron Jacques Pineau de Viennay provides a fabled setting in which luminary chef Maxime Thomas creates authentically French and impossibly fresh dishes, with a subtly modern approach. Focusing on locally sourced organic ingredients, many from the expansive potager garden of the Château and the bounty of the region, Chef Thomas presents original, seasonal dishes that are as remarkable for their artistry as they are for their gastronomique success. Under the masterful direction of Chef Thomas, the cuisine at Le Lucé is nothing short of enchanting.
