France Trip Itineraries

Best High End Restaurants in Paris

Destination(s): Paris

From truffles à 'gaga' at Michel Rostang tucked away in Paris' bourgeoise, chic 17th Arrondisement to classic French cuisine with a modern touch at Jules Vernes in prime tourist territory at the Eiffel Tower to downstream at La Tour d'Argent in swanky St. Germain -- a dinner for two with a nice bottle of wine at anyone of these Parisain fine restaurants is likely to set you back as much as a round trip ticket from New York, but any trip to Paris wouldn't be complete without at least one dinner 'a la luxe.' So scour the discount airfare site and downgrade from business class and try to book a table at any of these super pricey Parisian culinary wonders. Even vegetarians have a spot on this list - check out L'Arpege. read more about Best High End Restaurants in Paris

Working under the overall direction of the many-Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse, who is a household name in France, the young chef Pascal Féraud and his team of thirtysomethings present a menu that tries to give a modern touch to the dishes that are considered part of France's heritage. A meal here does not come cheap – the set menu is 200€ - but you are paying for top-class cooking in a unique location. There is a private lift (elevator) from the south pillar to carry you to the dining room 125 metres up in the air. The set menu might include green asparagus from Provence with truffled French toast, pan-seared turbot served Joinville-style with prawns and mushrooms or sautéd medallions of veal, while the à la carte features poached Brittany lobster and escalope of duck foie gras en cocotte and duckling cooked with turnips and plums in a cider reduction.
