Afternoon tea in the Palm Court at the Plaza is still a ritual, even more so under the supervision of hotel chef Didier Virot — he’s worked in Michelin-starred restaurants including Manhattan’s Jean Georges. But you may ask, what’s the exclusive china at The Plaza’s Palm Court? It is Grace China by Bernardaud.
Inspired by classical design from the 19th century, Grace is characterized by rich ornamentation. Each piece in the collection is decorated with a beautiful gradation of blue, creating an appearance of depth and sophistication. Garlands and flowers in raised gold are accented by medallions, instilling the design with great refinement. Its elegant shapes and rich detailing make Grace and ideal dinnerware service for grand occasions.
An icon of the grand tradition of excellence based in Limoges, France, Bernardaud embodies one of the most innovative spirits among French luxury houses today. A trendsetter in design, its porcelain collections are characterized by delicate colors and original forms, capturing the essence of their time. Traditional or contemporary, the Bernardaud collections elegantly modernize the art of entertaining.
“The art of fire is subtle and presents us with constant challenges. It excites us to always go further. I accept the challenge. It is a challenge that demands time before all else. It is the path of perfection.” Michel Bernardaud
