Benoit

Map
20 Rue St. Martin, Paris, 75004, France

This authentic French bistro dating to 1912 has played host to every Parisian mayor of the past century. Just steps from the city's Hotel de Ville (town hall), Benoit was run by a single family for three generations before being obtained by Alain Ducasse's restaurant group in 2005. The decor is charmingly old style: Brass fixtures, lace curtains, and velvet banquettes hold court alongside a polished zinc bar. The menu favors elegant French favorites like duck pâte, roast pigeon, and escargots in their shells with garlic butter. If paying with credit card, keep in mind that Benoit only accepts American Express.
