Fodor's Paris 2014

When Sir Terence Conran opened this impressive 300-seat restaurant, he promised to reinvent the Parisian brasserie, and he's come close. Alcazar's mezzanine bar is famed for its DJ, and with its slick decor and skylight roof, it feels more like London than the Rive Gauche. The kitchen may have started out rather uncertain of what it wanted to accomplish, but the food is now resolutely French with the occasional Mediterranean touch, plus the house classic fish-and-chips. Prices are reasonable: lunch menus start at €22, while a dinner menu is €43. The chef seems to have found his groove with dishes such as salmon-and-ginger tataki and veal braised with morels. For dessert, it's hard to pass up the profiteroles, mille-feuille, or baba au rhum. Sunday brunch is popular, and the restaurant is now the Paris venue for the TV show Top Chef.
