As a regular guest at Le Bristol, I've dined at Epicure on a number of occasions and found each experience to be excellent. Whilst the standard menu does not offer a vegetarian tasting, contacting the hotel prior they happily arrange one. As my visit coincided with truffle season, I opted for a 7-course tasting menu - which was every bit as good as my previous two visits. The service was excellent - attentive whilst not overbearing (a failing with many highly rated restaurants). As for the food, very enjoyable - the Pearls from Japan being a particular highlight as so delicate with beautiful texture. The menu: - White and black truffle pizzettas with preserved onions and mozarella - Artichoke soup with black truffle emulsion - Leeks from Ile de France, grilled, with mimosa vinaigrette and black truffle - Artichoke from Provence, with slices of black truffle and artichoke chips - Monarch celeriac cooked in coarse salt, grated Beaufort and black truffle, whisked butter with black truffle juice - Brie de Meaux, curly endive salad, lamb’s lettuce with truffle - Pearls from Japan, with coconut milk, grated white truffle from Alba And for the wine, the selection is extensive. I opted for one of the Sommelier's recommendations - which complemented the truffles perfectly. My thanks to the entire Epicure team for another very memorable dining experience.
