    The game changer

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 09/12/2016

    » <b>The setting:</b> When we heard that The Reflexions had recently taken on its first lady head chef, Dutch national Roxanne Lange, we headed on right over to the Plaza Athénée. After all, this marks a new chapter in the restaurant's storied history. And, what a way to put a fresh interpretation on modern French cuisine -- by adding some warmly welcomed feminine and Dutch flavours to the mix. Chef Lange, having previously worked under Michelin Star guidance at the Savelberg, brings with her a wealth of knowledge in French cuisine as well as her training from Rotterdam too. The restaurant itself, tucked away on the third floor of the hotel, has dim and intimate lighting. The notes of a live piano, played by Jean Francois, The Reflexions resident French pianist, grace the space with sounds of jazz tunes interwoven haphazardly with classical and romantic all-time greats.
