Best Restaurants: One of those un-adorned façades that houses a 12-table dining establishment, L'Ami Louis is a Parisian staple. It's not cheap -- about 150euro per head for lunch-- and it's not easy to get a reservation, but it's so worth it. Louis Gadby serves haute couture foie gras, duck from Barbarie, pork from the black pigs of Gascony, and handpicked black truffles from his own closely-guarded sources. Even Alice Waters counts this as her favorite Paris restaurant (it's said). If you're an epicurean -- as in slabs of foie gras and chicken cooked in goose fat - you're gonna love this place. It's not a romantic date restaurant, because your fellow diners could be anyone from Clinton (yes, Bill), to the celebrity on this week's cover of People, but for an authentic French meal at a famous, but not flashy, address, this is your sure bet. IF you can get a table.
Lunch, Bistro Traditional: Established in 1924, Chez L'Ami Louis is still a great place for a delicious meal. Don't let the building's aging appearance fool you, because the restaurant is known for its great French fare, including lamb cut French-style and foie gras. The quaint, simple interior establishes a comfortable, friendly environment and is ideal for a satisfying meal. An ideal place for people watching, too - Presidents Clinton and Chirac have been there. METRO: Arts-et-Métiers (line 3 or 11) / Temple (line 3)
