The palace of mirrors will now have a gourmet eatery nearby.

Alain Ducasse — world-famous chef of three three-Michelin-starred restaurants — will soon be able to add one more impressive feat to his culinary resume: opening a restaurant at the Palace of Versailles in France. Originally, he had slated the restaurant to open in April, but the date has since been pushed back to September, a press release says.

The restaurant will be located on the first floor of the pavilion Dufour opening onto the cour Royale. The pavilion has been undergoing a significant rehabilitation program since 2011. The restaurant itself was designed by iconic French architects Dominique Perrault and Frédéric Didier.

Ore will be open to the public during the day and will become “an exclusive dining experience” at night for private events. The public portion of the restaurant will operate like a traditional French café with classic cuisine “alongside light and quick snacks, desserts and gourmet pastries.”

"Versailles is a dream that fascinates and impassions me,” Duscasse is quoted as saying on Ore’s website. "Everything still amazes me as if each visit was my first. It is truly a privilege to bring my modest contribution to the palace's contemporary history."

The name of the restaurant refers to the French word for mouth, meaning that the menu will focus on “pleasures of the mouth,” as a nod to the artistic pleasures guests experience while visiting the famous palace of mirrors.

The food at the Palace of Versailles just got a major upgrade.

Alain Ducasse, who has racked up 21 Michelin stars throughout his career, has opened Ore, an "elegant contemporary café in the true French spirit" that will serve breakfast, lunch, and tea before morphing into an event space at night.

Designed by the architect Dominique Perrault and by the chef architect of the Palace of Versailles, Frédéric Didier, Ore is named after the Latin word for mouth. Ducasse "refers to the pleasures of the mouth, important to French art de vivre and, particularly in Versailles, to the services of the bouche du Roi, whose duty was preparing the meals served at court," press materials explain.

The restaurant serves French classics like quail paté en croûte, ham and comté croque monsieur, and three flavors of soufflés. "In this unique setting, I wanted guests to dine as in the time of the King," Ducasse says. "French cuisine with a contemporary touch, but whose inspiration draws from the food served at the time. More than a meal, this is an experience."
