There’s something so magical about Auberge Nicolas Flamel that we’re surprised it’s not better known. One of the oldest in Paris, the anonymous listed stone house hidden away near the Louvre Museum has been serving food since 1407. Today, its romantic ground and first floors, joined by a handsome sculpted wood staircase, serve refined seasonal French dishes like seven-hour lamb, and red mullet with capers, lemon pulp, black olive purée, and grilled ratatouille. Everything is beautifully presented, in harmony with neat white small tables and wooden chairs bathed in candlelight. The bill arrives in a little a treasure chest-like box.
