Carré des Feuillants (one star)
Véritable institution parisienne, le restaurant d’Alain Dutournier A veritable Parisian institution, Alain Dutournier's restaurant has admittedly lost a Michelin star at the time of the publication of the last red guide, but that does not stop the fans of great French cuisine from rushing to this discreet table located between the Tuileries and Place Vendôme...a certes perdu une étoile Michelin lors de la publication du dernier guide rouge, mais cela n’empêche pas les amateurs de grande cuisine française de se précipiter à cette table discrète située entre les Tuileries et la place Vendôme...
… And from enjoying a superb lunch menu, called Tentation (68 €), which should really be reimbursed by the Social Security as an effective antidepressant! If you are still not convinced, you should see their menu: red barbet in escabèche and rust saffron are the perfect appetizers. Next step, the gourmet pie of venison and foie gras or the delicate Saint Jacques and chorizo tart along with its young leeks parboiled. For the main course, the braised veal with mushrooms, fricassee sweetbread, heart of lettuce with juice. And a final note of bliss with the chestnut parfait, vanilla Mont Blanc and pear in shortbread.
