Cuisine: French

Tucked away in a small street behind the Assemblé Nationale and the French Ministry of the Defense, this old-fashioned, rustic restaurant is a must-visit. Wooden ceiling beams, mustard silk walls, old leather chairs and individual lamps on each table make the ambience cozy and intimate. Hearty traditional fare includes beef you can cut with a spoon. The patron Francis Vandenhende, studied under the famous Gaston Lenôtre. His desserts are exquisite. Great people-spotting, with journalists, politicians and military big brass by day, showbiz by night. Jimmy Carter, François Mitterand, Boutros Boutros-Ghali and Hugh Grant have all dined here. Service by the short-sleeved, bow-tied waiters is friendly and relaxed, if unhurried. But what's the hurry? You're down on the farm. -Jean Grogan
