Paris is a Feast Activities and decorations of the luxury hotels
At Le Meurice, resplendent with green boughs and shining strings of lights, the festive season is gathering pace with a magical Christmas tree hung with white and silver orbs. And the culinary delights here make our heads spin! It is so hard to choose between the Christmas and New Year brunches, lunches and dinners! Among the star attractions are caviar, oysters, foie gras and poultry from Southwest France, not to mention Cédric Grolet’s specialties served at Le Dali. Then the gastronomic menu at Alain Ducasse’s restaurant, featuring truffles and other mouthwatering produce from the Southwest, will enchant gourmets.

At Le Camélia, the festive menu available from December 11 to 30 will enrapture connoisseurs. And those with a sweet tooth will love Adrien Bozzolo’s delicacies, served at Christmas Tea Time throughout December. Finally, 2017 brings a new attraction: the Louboutin Nail Bar, open at the spa from December 11 to 30.

Ritz Paris has been festooned in gold for the season and is surprising visitors with its oyster chalet on the terrace of the Vendôme bar. This attraction is a prelude to the Christmas Eve dinner at La Table de l’Espadon, presided over by the brilliant Nicolas Sale. Then on December 31, after an extraordinary meal at a New Year’s Eve price (€2,018), guests will be dancing long into the night.
