Le Clarence's identity is born out of a magical recipe. The main ingredients 
include the audacious concoctions of a seasoned "rebel" Chef, Christophe Pelé, 
mixed in with the vision of a daring entrepreneur, Prince Robert of Luxembourg, 
President & CEO of family company, Domaine Clarence Dillon. Together, in 
November 2015, they created a unique blend of instinctive, brilliantly executed 
modern cuisine, juxtaposed with the warm traditional charm of a French chateau.

Housed in an elegant 19th century mansion located in Paris, only meters away 
from the most famous avenue in the world, the Champs Elysées, Le Clarence is 
situated at the epicentre of the city of lights' Golden Triangle and thus in 
the exalted heart of European culture and the global luxury goods industry.

It is with tremendous joy and pride that Chef Christophe Pelé, on behalf of his 
entire team, salutes the 50 Best Committee and states: "This extraordinary vote 
of confidence from such a distinguished panel of epicurean connoisseurs touches 
us deeply. You can be sure that this will only add to our keen desire to 
further dazzle our guests and to surpass ourselves with every service".

Delighted, Prince Robert of Luxembourg remarks: "At Le Clarence, we aimed to 
create a unique environment where time stands still. On every occasion that I 
have the pleasure to enjoy Chef Pelé's cuisine, I am deeply moved by the 
elegance, delicacy and subtlety of his compositions. I have no doubt that this 
exceptional honour conferred on us by this exalted jury of peers will encourage 
our teams to reach new heights. We are deeply grateful to the 50 Best 
Restaurants for this outstanding recognition bestowed on our relatively 
youthful establishment."

Christophe Pelé
Managing Director and Executive Chef of the restaurant Le Clarence

From a very young age, Christophe Pelé developed a taste for cooking, but it 
was only at the age of 25 that he became aware of his destiny.

After having worked in the most prestigious Parisian establishments - Ledoyen, 
Lasserre, Pierre Gagnaire, Le Bristol -, it was at the Royal Monceau that 
something clicked for him when he met Bruno Cirino. This was an important 
turning point in his life. He took over the reins of the Royal Monceau kitchen 
from the Chef in 2004.

In 2007, chef Pelé opened La Bigarrade, which he imagined to be a simple 
"neighbourhood restaurant" in Paris. The Michelin Guide awarded him his first 
star in 2008 and his second in 2009. He closed his restaurant in 2013 and took 
some time to explore new horizons and discover other culinary cultures.

In 2014, Christophe Pelé met Prince Robert of Luxembourg and together they 
opened Le Clarence in November of 2015. Le Clarence was awarded two stars by 
the Michelin Guide in 2017.
