Alain Ducasse at Le Meurice

L1060427

Last time I’ve been to Alain Ducasse in Paris, I found the cooking slightly outdated and the place quite touristy (with little Eiffel tower copies on each table). 5 years forward, it was as if I was at a totally different restaurant. The biggest change is not that because of the renovation works at Plaza Athénée, Alain Ducasse Paris has moved to Le Meurice, another 5 star “palace” hotel on the Right Bank. The cooking itself has been morphed from classic and heavy to light Mediterranean, where vegetables and fruit are the main focus. The executive chef Christophe Saintagne is clearly bringing the whole dining experience closer to the Provençal high end cooking you can find at Alain Ducasse in Monaco

    Every year we have one 3 Michelin star meal in Paris.Would you suggest Alain Ducasse at Le Meurice?
    Last year we went to L’Astrance and were slightly disappointed.
    Thanks.

      Hi Allan, I would definitely suggest it. But it’s very vegetables based and the cooking is quite “minima”l, so it depends what you like..
