The original Parisian palace hotel, Le Meurice is increasing its sense of humor and glamour this Easter. Camille Lesecq, Head Pastry Chef, has invented the "Minute Hen". At Le Meurice, excitement is bubbling about this Easter Hen. Made from 100% chocolate, the hen bears a clock on its chest, reminiscent of Salvador Dali's watch, a tribute to the artist who made Le Meurice his Parisian residence for several months each year, for over thirty years. Tick tock tick tock… This clock is also a reminder of time passing but stopping at Le Meurice, as the hand of the chocolate clock is stopped on the figure 228, as in 228 Rue de Rivoli… An invitation to come and taste the delicious chocolate hen, starting with the head and the body, made from 60% Caribbean chocolate, then the feathers, eyes, beak, wings, clock and finally the feet, made from ivory white Chocolate. This is a surprise waiting to be discovered inside, behind the clock face. The Minute Hen is 100% Le Meurice, so come and taste the delicious and creative "Minute Hen" without further delay, at Le Dali restaurant. Available from Monday 22 March to Monday 5 April 2010 inclusive, from noon to 11p.m priced at 27€. Reservations on +33 1 44 58 10 44.
