If you are thinking of going to Paris in the next days or in the New Year, take the time to explore 6 of the Most Memorable Restaurants in Paris.
It’s not every day one can eat where Dalí, Monet, and Zola ate, or taste outstanding wines from a cellar that endured the second World War unless of course, you live in Paris.
From palatial, Napoleon-era gems and art-filled cafés to swanky, Michelin-star mainstays, Paris is full of world-class dining destinations that are as historic and memorable as they are alluring.
La Tour d’Argent
It’s Michelin star, Seine views, and rich, 400-year history make this Paris pillar one of the city’s hottest tickets. In 1919 the restaurant famously began numbering their ducks before serving them—a tradition that continues to this day. La Tour d’Argent is also known for its vast wine cellar that survived World War II.
One of the city’s oldest cafés, Le Procope was opened in 1686 by Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli and fascinated writers, artists, and politicians alike. Voltaire, Rousseau, Beaumarchais, and Balzac are said to have been regulars here.
Le Grand Véfour
Named after the Duke of Chartres, first son of Louis d’Orléans, this grand Parisian gem opened in the arcades of the Palais-Royal in 1784. Neoclassical decor abounds here, and each table is named after one of the restaurant’s many famous patrons.
Travellers who choose to dine at the three-Michelin-star Ledoyen will be in great company. Since opening its doors along the Champs-Élysées in the 18th century, this luxury restaurant has attracted a number of historical figures, writers, and world-class artists, including Flaubert, Zola, Monet, and Dalí.
Registered as a heritage site this Second Empire–style restaurant has been serving up traditional French menu—like brioche of quail and home-reared pork—for more than two centuries. Its title dish, escargot, continues to attract tourists and locals alike.
For excellent people-watching and signature Parisian dishes, head to Lipp. This legendary 19th-century brasserie is known for its classic dishes, as well as the many actors, musicians, politicians, and writers (Proust, Hemingway, and Camus) who have favoured it over the years.
