Some distinguished signatures take the art of gastronomy to new heights. All the big names in French cuisine have a Paris address: reinvention of traditional dishes; fusion of herbs and spices, both savoury and sweet; innovation and a touch of genius are the main ingredients at these celebrated venues.
Ambassadors of French cuisine, the top starred chefs, ranked in the food guides, will receive you in their domains, where the setting is often as spectacular as the bill. If dinner there is beyond you, why not try their lunch menus, somewhat easier on the pocket but usually taken by storm! Advance booking is essential, at least a fortnight before.
