The best Paris restaurants are some of the world’s best restaurants. Paris counts 10 triple Michelin-starred restaurants, but if you're only going to dine in only one, this is the place.
In fact, the venue itself is slated to change: Paris is buzzing with the news that as of late 2011, Savoy is shifting his operations to the left bank's monumental former mint, the Hôtel de la Monnaie (11 quai de Conti, 6e), which will house both his gastronomic flagship as well as a less formal space, the Metal Café.
In the meantime, you'll find Savoy at his refined right bank premises, preparing seasonal creations and such perennials as his legendary artichoke soup with black truffle- and wild mushroom-layered brioche. Also legendary is Savoy's theatrical presentation, such as a shroud of vapor that lifts to reveal steamed Breton lobster. Add to that Champagne from Savoy's own vineyards, carts laden with a mouthwatering choice of fresh breads (try the chestnut) and France's finest cheeses, along with impeccable service, and this is the pinnacle of haute cuisine.
