World’s Largest Restaurant at Paris 2024 Olympic Village

The Paris 2024 Olympics are set to kick off with a groundbreaking culinary experience for athletes, as the world’s largest restaurant is unveiled in the Olympic Village. With more than 200 chefs on hand to prepare over 13 million meals throughout the Games, the culinary team is ready to wow athletes with a diverse menu and sustainable practices.

Located at the Cité du Cinéma film studio complex in Saint-Denis, the restaurant will feature six main areas dedicated to French, Asian, Afro-Caribbean, and world cuisine. Collaborating with former French sailor and bronze medalist turned nutritionist, Hélène Defrance, the chefs have curated a menu focused on quality, transparency, and flavor to cater to a wide range of tastes.

In an effort to reduce the carbon footprint of meals produced during the Games, a strict quality charter has been established. Ingredients will be locally sourced within a 250km radius of Paris, with 20% certified organic and a third of the menu being plant-based. The emphasis is on sustainability, with only reusable cups and crockery offered and a focus on environmental progress.

Superstar chefs like Amandine Chaignot, Alexandre Mazzia, and Akrame Benallal have developed signature dishes that blend French tradition with local ingredients to meet the nutritional needs of athletes. From lentil dal with skyr to roasted French poultry with langoustine bisque, the chefs are committed to providing delicious and nourishing meals.

Overall, the culinary team, led by Executive Chef Charles Guilloy, is dedicated to ensuring that athletes have a memorable dining experience that reflects the diversity and quality of French cuisine. With a focus on sustainability, flavor, and nutrition, the world’s largest restaurant in the Olympic Village is poised to be a highlight of the Paris 2024 Olympics.
