Fodor's Expert Review Le Grand Véfour

$$$$ Louvre/Tuileries French Fodor's Choice

Originally built in 1784, Le Grand Véfour has welcomed everyone from Napoléon to Colette to Jean Cocteau under its mirrored ceiling, and is still a contender for the most beautiful restaurant in Paris today. The rich and fashionable continue to gather here to swoon over two-Michelin-star chef Guy Martin's unique blend of sophistication and rusticity. There's an outstanding cheese trolley, and for dessert try the house specialty, palet aux noisettes (meringue cake with chocolate mousse, hazelnuts, and salted caramel ice cream).
