Remember your visions of the gilded age in Paris, turn of the century when no one could conceive of WWI? Or remember when you found out you were going to Paris the first time, perhaps with that someone special or on a girl's shopping trip, and you thought oh what shall I wear? Well you can recapture those old glory days, just unpack that fun cocktail dress you were hoping to wear, shake out his jacket, and find your way through the unassuming doors of the Le Meurice. You won't be disappointed.
On weekends, Le Bar 228 is lovely for pre or post dinner drink. Dark wood interior, deep leather chairs, strategically placed for optimal vantage points of the room. The live piano and base add their charm, and they take special song request, think those great old standards, although my special request was Frankie Valli.
A special mention to Salim Kessab, who went beyond the call of duty in giving us a lovely tour of of the hotel event rooms, truly breathtaking, and making excellent suggestions for where we should go later in the evening.
Gents looking to propose in Paris at a at dinner and then retreat to your inner sanctuary in the hotel? This should be a top spot to consider.
Girls on a Paris art and fashion trip, you can't go wrong with starting your evening here with a champagne cocktail. We liked it so much we went twice to Le Bar 228.
Dine in Dali, the more relaxed little sister to the Formidable Le Meurice by Alain Ducasse. It will still cost a pretty penny, but you will never forget it. If it's still on the menu, order the mushroom appetizer and have the Peach dessert, you won't regret it.
