Fodor's Expert Review Prairial
Culinary innovation runs deep in this food-centric city, and Gaëtan Gentil is among the new generation chefs shaking things up, with a fruit-and-vegetable-centered cuisine that's as subtle as it is surprising. Unexpected flavor combinations (grapefruit and marigold; chicken and lemon verbena) are refreshingly original and presented with an almost pictorial beauty. With only 10 tables, reasonable prices, and a shiny Michelin star, reservations are a must.
