Restaurant le Meurice Alain Ducasse
The two Michelin-starred Restaurant le Meurice Alain Ducasse celebrates Ducasse’s culinary philosophy under the mastery of executive chef Amaury Bouhours. In a reinterpretation of classic haute cuisine, dedicated to great subtlety and technical skill, exceptional ingredients remain true to their authentic flavours.
Inspired by the Salon de la Paix at the Château de Versailles, the majestic setting has been carefully enhanced by more playful touches, including iconic Eero Saarinen Tulip chairs, two decorative screens and a sculpture capturing the suspended movement of water. These modern elements sit perfectly amongst the antique mirrors, crystal chandeliers and elegant frescoes, creating a stunning setting for the outstanding cuisine.
The experience, the story, the food
At the very heart of the restaurant is our dedication to celebrating the essential nature of every ingredient. This results in delicious dishes of great subtlety, created with simple produce. From here the journey begins.
A symphony of Grand Siècle splendour and modern lines
Inspired by the Salon de la Paix in the Chateau de Versailles and reinterpreted by Philippe Starck, this is a room of majestic, classical elegance combined with contemporary delight and humour.
Worth the wait
Dessert is the grand finale of dinner at Restaurant le Meurice Alain Ducasse, and it’s definitely worth the wait. As a rare treat for diners, award-winning pastry chef Cédric Grolet breaks all the rules with innovative plated desserts centred around his three key principles: one flavour in multiple textures, one surprise element, and of course stunning presentation. The results are exceptional.
Chef Alain Ducasse has developed over 30 years a unique knowledge in the art of living and eating. He is at the helm of 26 restaurants worldwide, 3 luxury country inns and a hotel association. His vision of the profession places passion and transmission of knowledge at the forefront of his projects. This can be clearly seen throughout his activities in publishing, training both professionals and amateurs, and finally consulting. As a passionate leader, Alain Ducasse is constantly looking to share his vast cultural awareness and curiosity with the rest of the world.
Executive chef Amaury Bouhours is the rising star of our Alain Ducasse restaurant. Beginning his career at Le Louis XV in Monaco, he then went on to work for Alain Ducasse restaurants around Paris, including Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée, before joining Le Meurice as chef de cuisine under Jocelyn Herland. Describing his protégé, Alain Ducasse says Amaury was a natural choice for the role, “embodying a youthful outlook and fresh approach to ‘Essential Cuisine’, with a passion for authentic flavours and the excellence of contemporary French gastronomy”.
Cédric was born in Firminy, a small French village in the Rhône-Alps region of the Loire. At the age of 32, he is now the head pâtissier at Le Meurice and he was recently named ‘The World’s Best Pastry Chef’ at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Ceremony 2018.
Restaurant le Meurice Alain Ducasse will reopen its doors on September 2.
