Fodor's Expert Review Lapérouse

$$$$ St-Germain-des-Pres French

Émile Zola, George Sand, and Victor Hugo were regulars here, and the restaurant's mirrors still bear diamond scratches from the days when mistresses would double-check their jewels' value. It's hard not to fall in love with this storied 17th-century Seine-side town house with a warren of woodwork-graced salons, though the cuisine, a mix of traditional and modern, can be hit-or-miss. For a truly intimate meal, reserve one of the legendary private salons where anything can happen (and probably has).
