Lunch is a pleasurable experience at Le Meurice. It is not a stuffy place. The dining room atmosphere and the cordial staff prepare you for the moment when the first amuse-bouche arrives. One of the first things you are asked about dining with them is your allergy situation. Right away it is a hint of where you are going today. You are going to dine your way through a Japanese garden under French influence with those interested in your pleasure.
