1st Arrondissement

La Corte


320 Rue St.-Honore,


Located in the city's hip Golden Triangle, this gem is hidden away down a cobblestone alley and tucked into the corner of a courtyard (watch for a square, black sign hanging above the alley's entrance on Rue St. Honore). La Corte serves primarily traditional Neapolitan cuisine that makes for some of the best Italian dining in Paris. The 16-table dining room is intimate without feeling cramped, and the decor is pleasantly stoic with the exception of a handful of Greco-Roman sculptures. Anything with seafood is a good bet, particularly the grilled sea bass, though the asparagus taglioni is a house favorite as well.
