DROUANT
When chef Antoine Westermann bought Drouant in 2005, he bought a piece of Parisian restaurant history. The restaurant is sleeker now, and Westermann has brought new life to its cooking. The menu is in the brasserie spirit, which allows for flexible ordering. He revisits classic appetizers and offers them in generous portions for sharing. Meals feature "the exceptional product of the moment" like truffles or foie gras, in classic French preparations.

Drouant -- Lunch and dinner daily
16-18 place Gaillon, 2nd. Arr. -- +33 1 42 65 15 16 -- www.drouant.com


JADIS

[Reserve in Advance] Jadis features the pristine cooking of young chef Guillaume Delage, who has worked in some of the best kitchens in France. The blackboard menu changes regularly, but it’s likely to feature both classically correct French cuisine and delicious improvisations driven by the market. It’s an intensely personal restaurant and well worth the trip to the distant 15th arrondissement.

208, rue de la Croix-Nivert (15th arr.) -- +33.01.45.57.73.20 -- www.bistrot-jadis.com

RESTAURANT MICHEL ROSTANG
(TRADITIONAL) Michel Rostang?s farm upbringing leads him all over France in a search for superior products, which he often serves with startling simplicity at Restaurant Michel Rostang. Take his famous truffle sandwich?thick slices of black truffle on sourdough bread spread with salted butter. It?s left to stand for 24 hours so the truffles can infuse the bread, then toasted under a salamander. His restaurant, located in an old town house, is elegantly decorated. Service is friendly, never stuffy. The wine list is exceptional.

Restaurant Michel Rostang -- Lunch Tues.-Fri., dinner Mon.-Sat.
20 rue Rennequin -- 33.01.47.63.40.77 -- www.michelrostang.com
