La Marée restaurant in Paris on the Faubourg St-Honore is decorated like a little Tudor inn with leaded windows, traditional upholstery on the comfy banquettes, 17th century Flemish tapestries, and an high-end old-fashioned elegance that never goes out of style. However, all the fish that La Maree specializes in is the freshest fish possible prepared by chef Samuel Le Torriellec in both mostly classic French dishes. Try fresh oysters to start or warm Breton lobster in spring vegetable salad, main course of sole meuniere either steamed or grilled, and dessert of hot millefeuille caramelized with almonds, but be sure to order at the beginning of your meal. There’s a degustation menu and valet parking. The wine cellar must be miles deep, as there are nearly 900 bins to choose from with particular strength in the whites. The dining room – recently remodeled – seats up to 80.
