Tucked away inside the fabulously chic L'Hôtel in Paris’ Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Le Restaurant is a heady food-hedonists dream. The plush olive and ochre dining room, complete with a skylight and marble columns, is the epitome of opulence and sophistication. Le Restaurant’s Head chef Philippe Bélissent - formerly of the three-starred restaurant Ledoyen - is renowned for his interpretation of classically French seasonal cuisine. Popular dishes on his Michelin-starred menu include duck foie gras with sangria and Mirabelle plums and the pigeon casserole with grated beets and mash. Le Restaurant de L'Hôtel is popular with Parisians and tourists alike, who come here to celebrate almost any occasion in some of the most opulent surroundings in Paris. There are four-course and seven-course ‘Surprise’ meals organised by the chef, a temptation not to be resisted. And the service is widely believed to approach perfection, from the greeting at the front desk to the final whisking away of l’addition.
