Globally acclaimed chef Alain Ducasse is taking over management of the kitchens at Le Meurice hotel in Paris, part of the Dorchester Collection of hotels.
Starting in September, Ducasse will begin re-imagining the property’s Restaurant Le Meurice, which has three Michelin stars, and Restaurant Le Dalí.
Ducasse has already revamped two other Dorchester Collection hotels: the Plaza Athénée in Paris and The Dorchester in London. The Plaza Athénée has since closed for restoration.
Ducasse commented, “I am honoured that Franka Holtmann, general manager of Le Meurice, with the support of François Delahaye, chief operating officer of Dorchester Collection, has asked me to join Le Meurice. French cuisine has a major place, a role and an impact in the world today. I am pleased to contribute to its success in the two finest locations in Paris: Hotel Plaza Athénée and Le Meurice.”
