Gourmands looking for a place to stay should head to one of these Parisian hotels that come complete with Michelin stars

EPICURE

Le Bristol, France

If it’s good enough for a president, it’s good enough for us. When Nicolas Sarkozy was installed in the Elysee Palace, it’s said that he often popped around the corner to the three-star Epicure restaurant. But with dishes such as macaroni stuffed with black truffle, who can blame him?

A French restaurant that doesn’t serve steak? Incroyable! Well, it hasn’t stopped the king of French cookery from claiming a third Michelin star for his glamorous Parisian eatery. But with a meat-free menu that features dishes such as vegetable lemonade, buckwheat pancakes and caviar and lobster with candied clementines, who’s going to miss it?

 

SUR MESURE BY THIERRY MARX

Mandarin Oriental Paris, France

Within six months of opening Sur Mesure was awarded two Michelin stars. The molecular magician serves up a six-course tasting menu in an all-white restaurant so that it doesn’t detract from the food. Expect dishes such as pork backbone with fava beans and shellfish mousse and caviar crostini, which are all designed to leave you with the wow factor.
