Bouhours creates new culinary identity at The Dorchester Collection's Le Meurice, Paris

This autumn there are big changes on the culinary side at the legendary French hotel.

The original palace hotel in the heart of historic Paris, Le Meurice is the very epitome of quiet elegance and is home to the magical culinary talents of Alain Ducasse. Le Meurice is an inspirational and fascinating place where 18th-century splendour and the most innovative modern comforts sit happily side by side. The luxury hotel is a gallery, an adventure, and a living work of art.

New executive chef at Restaurant Le Meurice Alain Ducasse

As of this month, Le Meurice introduces new executive chef of two Michelin star restaurant Alain Ducasse, Amaury Bouhours, who will also oversee Le Dali restaurant. Following 15 years of working by Alain Ducasse’s side, Bouhours has created new menus to reflect a new culinary identity at Le Meurice.

Using local produce, 95% of his products used in his kitchens are from France. At his side, pastry chef Cedric Grolet and new sommelier Gabriel Veissaire match their respective talents to the menu, with the trio leading a new culinary chapter at Le Meurice. 

Pastries by Cedric Grolet at Le Meurice 

Cedric’s iconic pains au chocolat, crossaints and pains aux raisin are now available at Le Meurice for hotel guests and will form the classic breakfast offering, alongside the new “Paris s’éveille” breakfast offer for guests on the go – 28 euros for a choice of a hot drink and fresh fruit juice accompanied by two golden pastries baked by Cedric.

La Maison Valmont Paris flagship launch at Le Meurice 

This September, luxury Swiss cosmetics brand Valmont launched its new boutique, its first flagship in Paris, at Le Meurice. With a separate entrance on the street, it connects directly to the Valmont spa at Le Meurice. Designed by the president of the Valmont group, Didier Guillon, the space is a work of art in itself.
