A must try when in Paris


Restaurant Category : French

Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx - Paris, France: Sur Mesure is situated in the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Paris, France. Located on rue Saint-Honoré just minutes away from the Louvre, this restaurant specializes in modern French cuisine from Thierry Marx. Reservations are a must and I recommend making them well in advance.

Designed by Jouin-Manku, the décor of Sur Mesure was very simple, yet breathtakingly futuristic. A white upholstered canvas covered the length and breadth of this restaurant. Torn in places, it looked as if a fabric was being readied by a fashion designer to make a beautiful showstopper. To my partner, it looked like a blank canvas where the food would be the center of attraction. Either way, the surroundings were delightfully serene, part cocoon and part spaceship like. In the center of this 42 seat restaurant, an elliptical crystal seemed to be suspended in mid-air.

With two Michelin stars under his belt, Thierry Marx does an iconoclastic take on haute French cuisine at Sur Mesure.

For dinner, diners could choose between a six course and a nine course tasting menu. (Click here to see the nine course menu.) Either way, you have to plan on being here for at least 3 to 4 hours to savor this one of a kind experience to its fullest. We decided to go all out and opted for the nine course meal.

The food ranged from immensely delicious to decadent. However, at times, I felt it was rather average. Or rather it would be judicious to opine that the food sometimes was not suited to my palate. Though I can’t say all nine courses were delicious, each course was presented amazingly, with class, style and professionalism. The whole experience was almost sureal. The way food was set on the table, it was evident that they had practiced just putting the plate on the table in unison for hours together. And the presentation of the food on the plate was a work of art itself.

The staff was wonderful and they really made an effort to make us feel comfortable.

Suit and jackets are not a must here. I for one did not feel out of place without one. A dressy shirt and nice jeans will do you just fine, but as I mentioned earlier, reservations are a must.

Overall, dinner at Sur Mesure was easily one of the most unique dining experiences I’ve ever had. Though the food was average at times, Sur Mesure is a place that one must visit at least once in their lifetime. And at €195 per person, it's probably not a place you'll visit regularly. But, if you go, I can guarantee that you will be talking about this experience for years to come. Our rating for this ultra modern French restaurant is Fantastic Bombastic!
