Fodor's Expert Review Au Bon Accueil

$$$$ Around the Eiffel Tower French

To see what well-heeled Parisians like to eat these days, book a table at this chic little bistro run by Jacques Lacipière as soon as you get to town. The contemporary dining room is unusually comfortable, and the sidewalk tables have an Eiffel Tower view, but it's the excellent, well-priced cuisine du marché that has made this spot a hit. The sophisticated fare sometimes features Salers beef and green asparagus, roast lobster with mushroom risotto, and game in season. House-made desserts could include citrus terrine with passion-fruit sorbet or caramelized apple mille-feuille with hazelnut ice cream. The €36 prix-fixe menu for lunch or dinner, featuring dishes with a distinct haute-cuisine touch, is one of the city's great bargains.
