Fodor's Expert Review Guy Savoy
Within the beautifully restored La Monnaie (the old Paris mint), you'll find star chef Guy Savoy's hallowed dining room. The market-fresh menu retains the master's classics—artichoke soup with black truffles—with some new dishes like oysters pot-au-feu and sweet, bitter, and peppery roasted duck paletot that reveal the magnitude of his talent. If the waiters see you're relishing a dish, they won't hesitate to offer second helpings. Generous half portions allow you to graze your way through the menu—unless you choose a blowout feast with the €415 set menus for the 12-course option—and reasonably priced wines are available (though beware the cost of wines by the glass).
