While most of us mere mortals can only dream of staying there, we can all dine there. Dinner is rather expensive for most (David Lebovitz had an astonishing dinner there), lunch much more reasonable, and breakfast the bargain deal of them all. We can all dream of breakfast there. You can breakfast in two rooms. We feasted in the Restaurant Le Meurice- Alain Ducasse.
|It's one of the most beautiful rooms I've ever been in.|
|It feels like Marie Antoinette just stepped out.|
|The table was groaning with pastries.|
Either the best chouquettes in Paris are hidden from view,
or I'd eaten them all by this stage.
|We made a tactical error and ordered the eggs hollandaise with salmon too,|
not realising that it wasn't included in the buffet price.
|Even les toilettes are 5 star.|
Hotel breakfasts can have a bad reputation, but a 5 star hotel breakfast is really something special. A way to peak at how the other half live. I can't remember the price exactly, but I think the breakfast was about 40 or 42 euros. A definite bargain. Totally worth it. I'll be going back.
228 Rue de Rivoli, Paris 75001
Breakfast is served 0700-1030 during the week, and 0700-1130 on weekends.
|It's Paris in July!|
