I recently read that Yannick Alléno has left Restaurant-le-Meurice in Paris. Is this information correct? If so, who is now the chef? Have any of you eaten there since the change in chef and what did you think of the restaurant now?
Interesting - he already has operations in two of the groups hotels. Hôtel Plaza Athénée is closing for renovation in October thus assume Le Meurice will be his Paris flagship for a few years - interesting to see if he will reopen at the Plaza once it is finished.
I phoned and found out that Alléno no longer has any connection with the Restaurant-le-Meurice, but that his old staff is still running the kitchen. Have any of you eaten at the restaurant since his departure in January?
I don't think there has been a change in chef. What happened is, Alléno is running more and more restaurants throughout the world, Ducasse style. I heard no report of a change in performance or style at Meurice.
