‘If you don’t speak a word of French, if you like English comfort, clean rooms, breakfast and maîtres d’hôtel; if in a foreign land, you want your fellow countrymen around you, your brown beer, your friend and your cognac - and your water - do not listen to any of the messengers but with your best British accent cry heartily: “Meurice!” and immediately, someone will come forward to drive you straight to the rue de Rivoli.’

William Makepeace Thackeray, circa 1850

Alain Ducasse joined the Meurice (a Dorchester collection hotel) is in charge of the culinary concept of both hotels, the Plaza-Athénée and the Meurice: ‘I passed by the Meurice, saw light in the lobby, entered and offered them my services. They accepted,’ he joked.
