NileGuide Expert tip:
Working under the overall direction of the many-Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse, who is a household name in France, the young chef Pascal Féraud and his team of thirtysomethings present a menu that tries to give a modern touch to the dishes that are considered part of France's heritage. A meal here does not come cheap – the set menu is 200€ - but you are paying for top-class cooking in a unique location. There is a private lift (elevator) from the south pillar to carry you to the dining room 125 metres up in the air. The set menu might include green asparagus from Provence with truffled French toast, pan-seared turbot served Joinville-style with prawns and mushrooms or sautéd medallions of veal, while the à la carte features poached Brittany lobster and escalope of duck foie gras en cocotte and duckling cooked with turnips and plums in a cider reduction.
