Le Meurice Dining Room

After another morning of OPD with last week’s hot doctor, I headed to Le Meurice for lunch. Le Meurice is a Michelin 3 star restaurant headed by Chef Yannick Alléno. The dining room has been redecorated by  Philippe Starck in 2007. The dining room is super impressive…there are paintings on the ceiling and on the walls. The servers are dressed impeccably, and one cute guy was even in a tuxedo. I didn’t want to act too weird by taking a picture of him…but I really wanted to. 😦 The decor, combined with the servers’ expertise, make you feel like you’re royalty here. I arrived at 1:15 pm, 15 mins later than my reservation, but was still welcomed graciously. I was seated in a corner seat, giving me a great view of the entire room. The tables were spaced quite far apart…the restaurant had 2 or 3 empty tables during my meal. The rest looked like businessmen or tourists.

Immediately after I was settled in, I was asked what drink I would like, and I ordered a large bottle of Evian. I was then served 3 tiny delights. One was a mousse-y ball tasting of fish on a stick, which I forgot to photograph. The other 2 are pictured above. The salmon cheese roll was nothing special; tasted like buffet stuff. The asparagus mousse was delightfully smooth and flavourful though.
