Fodor's Expert Review Le Pré Catelan

$$$$ Western Paris Modern French Fodor's Choice

Live a Belle Époque fantasy as you dine beneath the chestnut trees on the terrace of this fanciful landmark pavillon in the Bois de Boulogne. Each of chef Frédéric Anton's dishes is a variation on a theme, such as l'os à moelle: bone marrow prepared two ways, one peppered and the other stuffed with porcini and cabbage, both braised in a concentrated meat jus. For a taste of the good life at a (relatively) gentle price, order the four-course €150 lunch menu and soak up the opulent surroundings along with service that's as polished as the silverware.
