The restaurant of Le Meurice hotel named after the fanciful master of Surrealism who was a frequent guest, Le Dalí cultivates a captivating ambiance with sophisticated style. Philippe Starck, who supervised the renovation works, chose copper or brass furnishings and a ceiling drapery by Ara Starck (his daughter) to create an arty and poetic atmosphere. A clever play of light between the hanging lamps and an immense slanted mirror lend a more cheerful and luminous youthfulness to the room. It is the perfect setting in which to enjoy the classic yet modern menu created by Alain Ducasse and executed by chef Jocelyn Herland. In Les Intemporels suggestions, you are sure to enjoy the exceptional Hansen & Lydersen Norwegian smoked salmon and the Burgaud crossbred duck, with beets and dolce-forte sauce. The more daring second part of the menu, showcasing Mediterranean flavors, can be ordered in small or large portions, to share or enjoy all to yourself. Tasty starters include the vegetable caponata or the lemon/hot pepper marinated sea bass, a lamb loin fillet with eggplant confit or nerone rice with calamari and pumpkin. What is not to be missed at Le Dalí, however, is the selection of exceptional desserts by Cédric Grolet, one of the most talented young pastry chefs in Paris. The dessert platter is a sight to behold, featuring Paris-Brest, fresh almond and lemon-mint éclair, which can all be sampled at Tea Time as well. With thoughtful service and flawless cuisine that reflects our whims and desires, Le Dalí has risen to the ranks of the supreme hotel restaurants in Paris. Sunday brunch.
