When I think of Paris it conjures up images of romance, style, beauty 5 star hotels and gourmet restaurants. We all know that we want a central location to be near the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe so I thought I would concentrate on one of the amazing restaurants in Paris that you should try if you really want a treat.

Le Meurice is definitely a very classy restaurant in Paris, near the Louvre, that seems to transport you back in time to an age of elegance, style, grace and beauty. The chef combines the finest traditional ingredients of French cuisine and the creativity of Nouvelle Cuisine that brings customers from far and wide. The extensive wine list offers excellent and rare vintages to choose from. The china was specially created by Limoges for Le Meurice, matching the mosaic patterns on the floor in what can only be described as one of the most beautiful dining rooms in Paris.

If you are looking to have a true 5-star gastronomic experience in Paris, Le Meurice is definitely worth the splurge but it is worth noting that you would be wise to book in advance so you are not disappointed. Even the Parisians line up for reservations.

 

So what can you expect from the menu?
