Gastronomic experience

This year’s event is taking place at the Grand Palais Éphémère (May 12 – 15). The spacious 10,000m²/107,639ft² hall will be turned into a food lover’s paradise for an eventful four days. During this time, you’ll be able to taste, sample and indulge in a host of different foods, as well as join chef workshops and buy ingredients to try out at home. Think delicious caviar, smoked salmon, olive oil and fine wines. If you opt for privileged access to the festival, you can dine in the refined Diners’ Club ® VIP Lounge facing the Eiffel Tower.

What’s on the menu

Amaury is particularly thrilled to be highlighting the diversity of dishes available at Restaurant Le Dalí. For this event, he’s moving away from the two Michelin-starred cuisine Le Meurice is best known for. The three stand out dishes he’ll be serving festival goers are a barely cooked sea bream, a white asparagus brulée, and a street food style marinated veal sandwich. Proof that this event offers something for everyone to enjoy.
