Cocooned in a verdant green courtyard inside this 17th century private mansion in the heart of Saint-Germain des Pres, the only haute-cuisine American fare restaurant in Paris offers comfort food cooked to perfection. The restaurant, of course, is by famed designer Ralph Lauren and it could not shout chic any more distinguishedly than it already does. Ratchet that up a notch when the fashion week crowd descends upon it, which is twice a year. The steaks served here are flown in directly from the RRL Ranch in Ouray County southwest Colorado and there is only one other place in the world that serves them: Ralph's New York. It comes with spinach and french fries as sides plus three different sauces: pepper, bbq and horseradish. The burgers and the salads, the crabcakes and the burrata-zucchini, the Ralph's brownie are other must-haves. There is also a generous mocktails list along with wines.
- Lunch: "Recent celebrity spottings here...Bradley Cooper. Jean Dujardin. The ex-Mrs. Johnny Depp. And loads of fashion world faces you'd recognize from the front rows of the runway shows. But don't come here for the crowd, come here for the food. Steaks flown in from Colorado, the best French fries in town, caramel popcorn served with your coffee...these are just a couple highlights. For the cooler months, ask to be seated inside by the fireplace."
- Best for Lunch Because: Melania wore Ralph Lauren powder-blue at the Inauguration, so it's just possible they might stop in for that Great-Steak-Meal when they're next in town.
