    A French Way of Living

    The French Touch also means a way of living in which excellent gastronomy takes pride of place. Every day, you will discover fragrant flavors, carefully selected cheeses and wines, delicious specialty breads and pastries from Maison Lenôtre. And, as of very recently, Maison Taillevent provides its fine selection of vintage wines by the glass, Maison Veuve Clicquot champagne is served at our gala cocktails, and delicious sweets from the Ladurée bakery are on offer during afternoon tea time.
