The old style china at Le Meurice pre-Starck days. Everyone needs at least one grand breakfast when visiting another town.
Chocolat Chaud at Le Meurice, original watercolor, 9" x 11"
I visited a year ago and was curious to see the interior changes made by French designer, Philippe Starck, best known for his New Design style.
Some changes were subtle - the dining room is lighter, brighter, but still just as grand as ever.
Even a new menu cover.
The hot chocolate is still 12 euros.
The roses are now deep red instead of pink.
The croissant is the same. Thanks M. Starck :)The pots of chocolat chaud are HUGE! Too much for one person.
The pour in a soup bowl-sized cup...YUM
My dining companion wanted the works. An omelette and the "continental petit dejeuner". I stayed true to THE EURO DIET with just the chocolat chaud. C'est la vie.
Getting ready for the lunch guests.
After breakfast we walked through the new "Le Dali" dining area. I love the quirky Empire touches Starck added like this rocking chair - did Josephine ever sit in a silver rocking chair?More unusual details, like these metal faux wood tables in reception.
Reception awaits you at the Le Meurice for your grand breakfast. And thank you Danielle Centoni for featuring PB on The Oregonian FoodDay!
BONJOUR FALL Petite Deje'!
