Le Meurice Restaurant

Le Meurice Restaurant

Chef: Yannick Alléno
(The Head Chef at the Meurice has been awarded a third star, the Michelin Guide’s highest honour ...) http://www.lemeurice.com/yannick-alleno

Restaurant Manager: Patrice Le Nouvel

At breakfast, lunch or dinner, restaurant Le Meurice offers a rich, subtle and varied menu. With precision, without extravagance, faithful to true flavours and excellently presented, Chef Yannick Alléno's three Michelin-star cuisine is modern and audacious.
"I try to think of what people will like" says Yannick Alléno. While Chef Sommelier, Nicolas Rebut, conveys his precious advice in tasting exquisite wines…
Restaurant Le Meurice is a veritable gastronomic tour including a new concept of tableware called Ondes © an unseen collection of plates designed by Yannick Alléno himself, the tour then continues with a champagne bar and a refrigerated wine cellar open to the dining room containing 616 bottles. The oldest bottle is a Château Cos D'Estournel 1928 Saint Estèphe and the most recent one is a Romanée Conti Grand Cru 2004. Last but not least, the Chef’s table placed in his kitchen… You certainly won't get bored!
Your palate will be astonished by the variety of savours and your eyes will be delighted by the dining room's wonderful decor. Inspired by the Salon de la Paix at Château de Versailles, the decor of restaurant le Meurice reinterpreted by Philippe Starck in 2007, really is an invitation to a unique rapture. This 17th century “grand siècle” style decor is based on three paintings dating from 1905 to 1907, the first phase of the refurbishment of Le Meurice since it opened. Theophile Poilpot (1848-1915) was a French Académie painter who painted in the “pompier” style.
Beyond the majestic gilded glass door, discover ancient mirrors, chandeliers and noble materials such as bronze, marble and other frescoes. Experience romantic elegance at its greatest, through the grand windows overlooking the Tuileries Gardens. This pure white and silver decor combined with natural daylight conveys a feeling of harmony on this extraordinary room.
