Chez l’Ami Louis
Paris’ most difficult table to book, this timeworn bistro, made famous by Chirac and Clinton, and frequented by pretty much every celebrity who passes through town, attracts Parisians and jetsetters for gargantuan entrecotes cooked in butter over a wood-burning fire, with shoestring frites, thick slabs of foie gras and fine wines. Bookings are accepted only two weeks in advance, and prices are stratospheric, but dining here is an unforgettable experience.

Jules Verne
Frédéric Anton will succeed to Alain Ducasse at the Jules Verne, which is now closed for refurbishment but will offer again its most spectacular views of the City of Light sometime in May 2019.

Located in the Carré des Antiquaires on Rive Gauche, the Voltaire welcomes Antique dealers and their clientele or politicians from the nearby Assemblée Nationale, that Mr. Antoine, the owner, welcomes in person and treats like royalties in this so chic little brasserie. The carte proposes standards of the French cuisine and if the “Oeuf Mayonnaise” is the joke of the menu, prices continue to rise beyond reason, but the many regulars are loyal to the place that they consider like their private club.

Relais de l’Entrecôte
The Relais de l’Entrecote, which literally translates to Steak House, is not only a brasserie but a cult for the Parisian crowd that lines up outside, hoping to get a table to taste this perfect classic French dish. No alternative but the salad with walnut and mustard dressing, and a thin-cut entrecote steak with shoestring French fries and special secret sauce. The rickety, white-clothed tables are packed together, elbow to elbow dining is de rigueur. No reservation, first-come first-serve policy, this place is packed for lunch and dinner every single day.

110 de Taillevent
110 wines by the glass (and not to forget 330 available in bottle)! That is a first time ever and knowing the reputation of Taillevent, the wines are nothing but spectacular and for any budget. The Carte proposes for each of the 30 dishes, the perfect match with four wines, just for your delight and satisfaction. The modern interior design is signed Pierre-Yves Rochon.

Coq Rico
Sinking into a sleek, spongy banquette, surrounded by all-white wooden walls, and with wafts of roasted chicken floating into your nostrils, you could be in a chic mountain chalet. This is, however, Antoine Westermann’s newest culinary venture, Coq Rico, a classy “bistrotisserie” (between a bistro and a rotisserie), nestled into the heights of Montmartre.Standards of comfort foods around chicken, poultries and eggs, become veritable gourmet delights. Have a drink at “La Dégustation” further up accross the street if your table or counter seats are not quite ready yet.

A. Noste
This is the third restaurant that Julien Duboué opens in Paris, after “Afaria”, and “Dans les Landes”, he had moved to this lively address located near the former Paris Stock Exchange. What is special about it is the large choice of creative tapas style inspired by Basque cuisine (South West of France) served on large high host tables. Very friendly atmosphère and you can also dine in the food truck and watch the lively crowd that fills up the place. On the upper floor, the ambience is more quiet and invites you to taste excellent meat matured by the Chef himself.

Le Récamier
With its specialty of soufflés, well, Le Récamier is not really a one of a kind but our prefered place for this specialty out of a very short list. Ideally located in Saint-Germain, just a short walk from Le Bon Marché, this restaurant in a dead end street offers a lovely terrace which is so enjoyable from Spring to Autumn. Chic clientele and reasonable prices.

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon
This concept restaurant, created by one of the world’s greatest chefs offers a gastronomic cuisine at a tapas-style bar counter with half-size and full dishes, and a fine selection of wines by the glass and bottle. Bookings are accepted for lunch at 11h30 and dinner at 6h30 pm. L’Atelier obtained its second Michelin star in 2008. Who would guess a few year ago that a restaurant serving at a counter would be part of the very elitist two-stars establishments?
