Restaurant Les Ombres, Quai Branly, Paris

The View: Designed by Le Musée du Quai Branly’s architect, Jean Nouvel, this restaurant takes its name from the shadows (les ombres) cast by the opposite Eiffel Tower. It’s got the kind of magical view of Paris and the River Seine that will have you humming Edith Piaf.

The Food: More creative than your average museum menu, with sweetbreads alongside truffle croquette and duck with creamy polenta and roasted hazelnuts. Wines skew French and represent all corners: Bordeaux, the Loire, Languedoc, and Alsace.

Tip: Keep it simple—put your trust in the seasonal prix fixe lunch menus (lunch $56; three-course dinner $95).
