by thinking

This restaurant is a wonderful place to enjoy an afternoon tea or a light meal in a beautiful setting.

Here is a new way to sample a Michelin 2-star chef?s cuisine for a relative bargain price.
The Meurice Hotel lounge in their Winter Garden is located next to the Meurice Restaurant off the lobby of the hotel.

There is a 45 Euro prix fixe lunch menu that changes each Wednesday, prepared in the same kitchen as the Dining room meals which is a 2 star Michelin Restaurant. Reservations are not required; service is excellent.

There are choices of two appetizers and two entrees and a special desert or anything from the desert trolley.

Today?s appetizers were a wonderfully rich fish soup with mussels or a tomato tart with an intense tomato coulis.
The main plate offerings were a crisp chicken breast with lemongrass and snow peas and celeriac, or a sea bass with potato slices and eggplant caviar. We had a coconut ball with pistachio and cherry interior from the trolley and a marvelous floating island with white peaches and peach sauce.
This menu will run through next Tuesday.
Call the manager Fabrice Marchand for the new menu next Wednesday. Tel. 0144581044.

Favorite Dish: Afternoon tea with tea sandwiches or the Pix fixe lunch.
