Discover the Restaurant Allard

Push the Allard door and entering  in one of the last true bistros of Paris ... 


Sit in it is steeped in history and soak up the spirit of Marthe Allard, "mother cook," who founded the house in 1932. In Allard, the kitchen has always been a story of a woman. So naturally Alain Ducasse asked Laetitia Rouabah continue to write this story.

His love of cooking and good products have been transmitted by his grandmother and mother. Laetitia makes a fine local cuisine, sincere and generous. Guests can enjoy at Allard traditional dishes in a friendly atmosphere: Pasty Arnaud Nicolas; Challans duck with olives; Beef cheek melting carrot; Savarin with rum, whipped Chantilly bit.

Restaurant le Dali

New flavours and a new tempo for Le Dali, one of Hotel Meurice’s restaurants. 
Le Dali is a one-of-a-kind restaurant, evolving as the day goes by. It welcomes the morning with a fantastic breakfast, transforming itself into an open and dynamic lunch spot. In the afternoon, it metamorphosis continues as it becomes the perfect teatime retreat, before returning to an elegant and cosy dinner spot for the evening. It thus follows the rhythm of the hotel, and unobtrusively, of the Capital.

 

Beautiful and classical contemporary French cuisine recipes. 
To uphold the cadence of the day, the menu is kept short, yet is frequently changed. And to set the tone, the offered cuisine remains resolutely French. 
All French staples can be found on the menu. The recipes are nevertheless contemporary in their presentation and alliance of flavours, but also in their preparation: flavours are always concentrated, juices give intensity while remaining light: citrus marinated bonito with crunchy fennel; Beef Carpaccio, anchovy condiment, Light Sole meunière à la grenobloise, baby spinach; wheat riso, squid and new vegetables; Hazelnut soufflé

 

Seasonal produce, regional flavours. 
Alain Ducasse, as a lover of produce, carefully watches over the recipes seasonality. For example, following the winters citrus and truffle flavours, customers can now enjoy two characteristic spring produce: organic suckling lamb whose flesh is particularly tender and refined, the flavour sweet and subtle. And Jérome Gallis green asparagus (Vaucluse) that arrive in Chef Christophe Saintagne’s kitchens the day after they were harvested, the guaranty of absolute freshness and an incomparable flavour.

A few forays into more distant lands, with for example Massimo Spigaroli’s black pig culatello, regarded by amateurs as the ultimate best ham, with its fruity taste and tender texture.

For lunch, people on the go will experience the new Edouard VII menu, served in 45 minutes, for 54 euros (Starter and main course or main course and dessert). Currently: Green asparagus velouté, fresh cheese; Steamed cod, peas and smoked eel; Paris-Brest.
