Sumptuous and luxuriant in everyway. Walking into the one of the most beautiful places to dine is breathtaking. The service is of course at the highest level imagined and the food is out of this world - delicious, beautifully presented and in abundance.

When Chef Nicolas Sale took over after the Ritz Paris renovation, one could wonder what he would make of the legacy of his 9 predecessors, including the legendary Auguste Escoffier, and some others like Bocuse d'Or winner Michel Roth. Coming down from his mountain with two Michelin in each of his restaurants, the Chef has achieved what many would have... More

大改装なったホテル・リッツ・パリのこのメインレストランを、11月上旬宿泊の日のディナーとして予約しました。初利用であったため改装後の比較評価はできませんが、ヘミングウェイが愛したというこのレストランの豪華な天井部分は、以前のまま残したということでした。元二つ星シェフのニコラ・サル氏が総料理長として再開に向け、内装や内容全般を指揮して作り上げてきたと聞き、期待して訪れました。 ディナーのコースは2つでムニュ・デクヴェルト(発見コース)195€とムニュ・シグニチュール(名物料理コース)330€とがあり、前者を選びました。ホテルのブログを見ると当日のこのコースの詳しいメニューが載っており、前菜・メイン・デザートがそれぞれのテーマで書かれてあり、それぞれ選択制であり(英語メニューあり)辞書も引きながら決定して行きました。 アミューズ1、前菜3、メイン1、デザート2+小菓子で、それぞれきれいで美味しく、量もほどよく、二人とも大いに満足しました。ギャルソンさんの話では、シェフは日本料理に興味があり、そこここに取り入れているとのことで、(青森産の黒ニンニクの表示もあり)我々にとって親しみのある日本の味が潜められていたかもしれません。(そういえば翌日のここでの朝食の1つは「The Japanese Breakfast」であった!) アミューズ:3つのクリミーな一口料理が平らなスプ―ンの上に載せられ、置いてあったサービスプレートを裏返して、その裏にある小さな皿に載せられました。クリーミーで美味しい!提供スタイルにビックリ.(味噌を混ぜたものがあった?) 前菜:テーマ「Crab」と「Beetroot」のうち2人とも前者を選択。3つに分け提供あり。  繊細なタラゴンゼリーの中に蟹の足・青森の黒ニンニク  クランブルしたクリーミーな蟹身、マリネした大根に蟹の卵をふって  蟹の鋏のラビオリにニンニクとレモングラスのコンソメをかけて メイン:  私は「Veal sweet bread sweet breadで育てた子牛」   ローストして皮をパリパリにした子牛、酸っぱい人参、ナッツ、人参の葉とともに   子牛の足・野性のスイバ・ピクルスを添えて  妻は「Red Snapper 赤のフエダイ」   ソテーしており、イカやドライトマトを煮汁とともに   Lemon gnocchisやバジルで砕いたウイキョウの実のサラダを添えて デザート  箸休めの冷たいデザートのあと 私は「Corn」 パイナップルのラビオリ、カリカリにしたキャラメルコーン、hay ice-cream 妻は「Rhubarb」 を選択 キャンデー化したバナナのラビオリ、温かいルバーブジュース、クリーミーな管状のルバーブ、サクサクのキャンデーとシャーベット 最後に引き出しを引くと上の照明が素敵に点灯する小さい台が持て来られ、引き出しの中の小菓子を珈琲と一緒に楽しみました。 料理や盛り付けのしかけを使って我々を驚かせ楽しませながら、美味しい料理を提供しようとするシェフをはじめとするチームの熱意を感じました。早めに星付きレストランに復活するのではないかと思い、星付になって混雑する前の今のうちに利用することをお勧めします。

Marvelous room, service, and food just as one would expect from the Ritz. Each course was leisurely served with explanations of ingredients and cooking techniques and careful wine recommendations.

Impeccable interior design in classic chateau style. You can dine in the main room or in the atrium. The food and the service are impeccable: all dishes cooked to perfection and with a bit of creativity. Prices are nearly affordable at lunch but slightly prohibitive in the evening. Come here for a special occasion to enjoy gastronomy at its best.

I think my mistake was just having dinner the night before at L'Epicure. We started with a appetizer that ended up being served 3 different ways and dragged on. My main course was very fishy as was my wife's. I definitely would not be back here.
