A sublime interior � made luxurious with tapestries, time-polished materials and muted colors � welcomes guests to this exemplary restaurant found right under the arcades of place des Vosges, Europe's oldest square and once home to King Henry IV. Romantic surroundings and pitch-perfect ambience unite flawlessly with chef Bernard Pacaud's classic French cuisine which he marries seamlessly with a touch of mondernity. Son Mathieu, who worked alongside him for over a decade has now opened his own restaurant near Trocadéro (Hexagone). Luscious foie gras, perfectly prepared seafood, and sumptuous ingredients like truffles and chestnuts impart dishes with flavor and texture. Plus, a terrific wine list heightens the ecstacy of every mouthful. METRO: Bastille (lines 1, 5, 8), St-Paul (line 1)
- Fine Dining: "This 3-Star Michelin restaurant overseen by Bernard and Mathieu Pacaud offers classical cuisine that dances with modernity. The setting, too, there on the Place des Vosges, is one of the most refined and romantic in Paris."
- Best for Fine Dining Because: One of the bastions of Paris fine dining, this location is also culturally significant: it's located on the "oldest" square in Europe, Places des Vosges.
