The chef’s dishes at Meurice's impress. The menu is pure enchantment, whether it offers a "blue" lobster in a Château Chalon wine (from the Jura) sauce; a filet of rouget (red mullet) with creamed sardine; or the astonishing "Poularde de Bresse" free-range chicken stuffed with foie gras. The service at Le Meurice is flawless. The décor here is Napoleonic of the Second Empire and is unforgettable. It could represent a perfect stage for the Offenbach's opera "La Vie Parisienne" (The Parisian Life).
