Mandarin Oriental Paris, one of only ten hotels in the city honored with the prestigious ‘Palace’ distinction, has a premier location on Rue Saint-Honoré. Just few steps from Place Vendôme, surrounded by history and fashionable shopping, the hotel features 98 luxurious rooms and 40 suites. Guests are invited to enjoy an eminently stylish Parisian experience, with some of the most spacious rooms in Paris. An inner courtyard camellia garden provides outdoor dining and is a peaceful oasis in the city. Mandarin Oriental Paris offers dining choices, include the two-Michelin star signature restaurant, Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx and Camélia. Along with The Cake Shop and Bar 8, are all under Executive Chef and Culinary Director Thierry Marx. The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Paris brings relaxation in a peaceful, modern setting, and an indoor pool and a fully-equipped fitness center complete the hotel’s leisure facilities.
Mandarin Oriental Paris will hold a cosmic dining event at its Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx restaurant each Tuesday in March. Guests will discover recipes Chef Thierry Marx has created for astronaut – Thomas Pesquet. The celebrity had to taste specially cooked dishes during his six-month mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS). To make the most of their space-age experience at the hotel, guests can book the One More Night Offer, which provides a complimentary third night’s stay. In response to a request from Thomas Pesquet and the European Space Agency, Thierry Marx created several dishes for the astronaut. These were specifically made to enjoy at Christmas, birthdays and other celebrations during his mission, which began in November 2016. The Michelin-starred chef’s recipes available at Mandarin Oriental Paris complied with strict health and safety rules developed by the French Food Innovation Centre, directed by Thierry Marx and chemist, Raphael Haumont. Guests will have an opportunity to dine like an astronaut on 7, 14, 21 and 28 March, when a gastronomic version of the dishes prepared for Thomas Pesquet will be presented at Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx. With the restaurant transformed to resemble a spaceship for these events, Mandarin Oriental Paris invites guests who will be able to choose from a six-course menu. The spatial dishes contain many surprises, including the three recipes created by Chef Thierry for the French spaceman: Lucullus’ ox tongue, Chicken supreme with morel mushrooms, and Apple gingerbread. The restaurant menu is priced at EUR 230 per head (excluding beverages).
Mandarin Oriental Paris’s involvement in Thomas Pesquet’s space mission will be celebrated in other ways at the hotel during March. The Cake Shop will offer the Planet Marx pastry, which is shaped like Mars and made of Madong chocolate and caramelized pears. The pastry is priced EUR 8 for take-away or EUR 15 at Camélia. At Bar 8, barmen have invented five Star Cocktails, including Starman (vodka, violet liqueur, cranberry juice, lime juice, and hibiscus syrup with gold and silver powder) and Stardust (tequila, red Haut Médoc wine, Heering liqueur and raspberry puree). Cocktails priced at EUR 27 each.
