Fodor's Expert Review La Cristal Room

$$$$ Champs-Élysees French

The success of this restaurant in the Baccarat museum-boutique stems not only from the stunning decor—mirrors, patches of exposed-brick wall, and a stunning chandelier—but also from the culinary stylings of chef Mathieu Mécheri. The menu provides a taste of his ultrarefined style with dishes such as a velvety velouté of wild mushrooms, and sole meunière with grapefruit and an arugula flan. Plan on reserving a week or two ahead for dinner; lunch requires little advance notice and is a reasonable €36.
