Le Dali Restaurant Review

: Le Dali, an offspring of the much-praised neighboring Le Meurice gourmet restaurant, occupies a wide open area just behind the lobby of this nineteenth-century luxury hotel done in the Empire style. Decorator Philippe Starck has revisited the classic space adding seats and couches of various (some might say assorted) styles and colors, topped by a monumental ochre-toned canvas signed by his daughter Ara. The unconventional décor is a veiled reference to the surrealist painter Salvador Dali, who lived for a while in this hotel. The food, though, is real. Head for the toasted goat’s cheese with honey, the roast Challans chicken breast with sautéed potatoes and chanterelle mushrooms, and don’t miss the hamburger “au couteau” rated by some as the best in town. Finish with a Saint-Honoré Parisien, coated with chocolate. All of this is well presented and prepared seriously. These components --- décor, food, relaxed atmosphere --- make a meal there an unusual experience, especially in a palace, which we presume is the purpose of Le Dali.
