Alain Ducasse at The Palace of Versailles
Taking its meaning from the Latin word for mouth, Ore is the latest offering from Alain Ducasse.
Set in the heart of Versaille’s Pavillon Dufour, the recently renovated space within the enormous Palace, Ore serves to evoke some of the services of bygone times. Using its name as a reference to the man whose duty was to carefully prepare meals served at court, known as the King’s Mouth or Bouche du Roi, Ore is the result of Alain Ducasse’s long term dream to serve in this historic building. A striking symbol of absolute monarchy and the Ancien Régime, today Versailles stands as a remarkable museum, resplendent with the bold extravagance of its past.
By day, Ore will serve as a relaxed café and dining space for visitors to Versailles to enjoy a selection of great French classics, light bites and delicate patisseries, while in the evening the venue becomes a haute cuisine restaurant, available for private events, staging grandiose dinners in a setting evoking magnificent royal splendor in the typical Ducasse style. With every detail considered – glassware, tablecloths, lighting – Ore offers an elegant and contemporary echo to historical Versailles with two culinary experiences in one unique, prestigious and historical setting.
