I don't know what the meat was (there were green onions in the dish), but they replaced it with fried cheese. For the last two nights, it's been fish which I need to eat more of. Fish, potatoes, an avocado with turkey breast open face sandwich, two salads, raw veggies and a yoghurt sauce. Cheesecake and a chocolate torte. (Last night it was just chocolate chip cookies). Three wines: red, white, rose. No hard stuff that I can see. I'm a lone female, so not having to go out to dinner is nice, even though I'm a foodie. I like the location. I'm walking places in the morning and taking public transportation back in the afternoon.
I was told the reason they don't have free spirits for free in the lounge is that they legally aren't allowed to in France.

Café Marco Polo across the street has good food. I like the outside seating area. I had a really good veal dish with a great sauce there last time.

I guess it's a french law either that or that manager was lying. I gave them a good TA review but did complain about no free spirits and this was their response:
Concerning the Executive Lounge, I am sorry to inform you that the french law does not allow us to provide any type of spirits for free. Wine, and beers remain however available and our Chef prepare himself on a daily basis some fresh and delicious "amuses-bouches".

Thanks for your comments. Is the deluxe room very small compared to 350 sq ft?

Must be a new law, all the bygone Paris Hiltons I stayed in had free flow Champagne and spirits, In fact the olde Eifel Tower Hilton started free flow champagne at 10:00 AM through 11:00 PM.

That sounds like nonsense. They're in Evian and Strasbourg. What a bizarre "law".

The response from management was back in 2015 when I had my first stay. Last time I was there was in July of 2018 and they've never had any hard liquor in the lounge. I just thought it was weird because every lounge I've been at in Europe has had spirits.
