If you’re a frequent flyer, the name Epicure most likely sounds familiar even if you don’t know exactly where to place it. It’s France’s most desirable dining locale; the place foreigners and Parisian locals flock to nightly for a taste of Eric Frechon’s savory dishes.

The world-famous restaurant calls the Le Bristol hotel home and offers guests spectacular dishes alongside incredibly stunning views of its French-style garden outside. The light-filled space received a facelift recently at the hand of architect Pierre-Yves Rochon and Mrs. Maja Oetker, transforming the restaurant into a sun-lit space with bay windows, gold fixtures, tasteful floral touches, and tons of soothing cream, ivory, and white décor.

Frechon’s menu has earned Epicure three Michelin stars, with cheeses changing by the seasons, a fresh-picked seasonal menu, and a personalized selection straight from the chef: Purple Sea Urchins served with smooth egg mousse, Sea Scallops served alongside Jerusalem artichoke puree and black truffle juice, the Saddle of Venison roasted with juniper berries, beetroot perfumed with Porto, Grand Veneur sauce and pureed celeriac, and a Peru Chocolate served with iced, foamy and crunchy chocolate sorbet infused with lemongrass, all served in a cocoa pod.

Less adventurous eaters can still sample everything Epicure has to offer on their own terms, as a regular menu is available daily in addition to the chef’s specialties.
