Fodor's Expert Review Le Jules Verne
Alain Ducasse doesn't set his sights low, so it was no real surprise when he took over this prestigious dining room on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. Most accessible is the €105 lunch menu (weekdays only), which brings you à la carte dishes in slightly smaller portions. Spend more (about €200–€250 per person without drinks) and you'll be entitled to lavish dishes such as lobster with celery root and black truffle and fricassee of Bresse chicken with crayfish. For dessert the kitchen reinterprets French classics, as in an unsinkable pink grapefruit soufflé with grapefruit sorbet. Book months ahead or try your luck at the last minute.
