Sur Mesure — Paris (12/2014)



For some time now, I had identified a restaurant in Paris where the use of modernist cuisine techniques was a strong part of the menu.  Chef Thierry Marx has such a restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel called Sur Mesure, or so at least that’s what my searches seemed to indicate.  I worked in a visit to Paris over my winter holiday and secured a reservation via email for dinner.

 The restaurant is behind a huge glass door on the lobby level of the hotel.  The décor can be described as ultra-modern and simple.

 The tables were arranged around a small art arrangement which seemed to be set out in an open-air central room (I couldn’t tell for sure as it was dark).  I was offered the opportunity to order some champagne, and I selected the rosé.  Soon after, some crispy snacks were brought to the table, along with the menu rolled up with a napkin ring.
