A cuisine of the essential
Alain Ducasse and Amaury Bouhours, executive chef at le Meurice, defines an almost "coarse" cuisine- as they create delicious dishes of great subtlety, with simple produce.

The chef carefully calculates every gesture, with an extreme attention to detail. Technique is matured to concentrate on flavours, disappearing to draw full attention to the ingredients. Tastes and scents can thus fully express their strength.

This is performed with a very contemporary vision of cuisine: recipes are lightened and preparations are purified.
The ballet led in the dining room by Frédéric Rouen, the restaurant manager, is an extention of the cooks movements. Paying attention to each guest, adapting to the pace of each table, being present without being omnipresent demonstrates great skill.

These are all clear steps leading to a unique experience. The seasonal vegetable cocotte, cooked in a salt crust and served for two as an appetizer, carries a clear message. The guest nibbles vegetables directly from the pan, dipped in a condiment - also created according to the seasons - with a long and elegant titanium fork.

Conversations flow, the guests share and find a sense of conviviality that is so essential to the success of a meal.
The meal as a story, the table as a stage ...
Resolutely eclectic, the tableware still blends with wonderful coherence, thanks to the meticulous care to harmony that Alain Ducasse exerts in their selection. Each piece's intrinsic beauty, unique character and sobriety draws elegance to the ensemble.

In the evenings, a composition of seasonal vegetables as a centerpiece reminds that here, nature is Alain Ducasse's major inspiration.

Pieter Stockmans signs the majority of the tableware, entirely handmade. Alain Ducasse has selected extremely simple shapes, some of which are uniquely distinguished by their singularity such as the Nautilus plate and its basin in an unexpected shape, whose fabrication process is selfishly kept by Stockmans.
The setting imposes "Grand Siecle" elegance.
Classic sophistication
