Le Jules Verne

Le Jules Verne

Map
Ave. Gustav Eiffel, Eiffel Tower, South Pillar, Paris, 75007, France

From its roost on the second platform of the Eiffel Tower, Le Jules Verne is helmed by Alain Ducasse (since 2007)—which means the food is truly worthy of its location. The 120-seat dining room resembles a hive-like space capsule, and from the poddish custom-carbon-fiber chairs by Patrick Jouin to the honeycomb panels covering the low ceiling, it all feels decidedly Trek-worthy, especially with floor-to-ceiling panes that look out to all of Paris. The price of the starters (which have included creamy shellfish velouté with essence of mushrooms and chervil) and mains (such as filet of John Dory with Japanese seaweed and shellfish) are as breathtaking as the view (there are also prix fixe options), and each course is punctuated with little extras like creamy pumpkin soup with chestnuts and a sliver of truffle. Even “just coffee” comes with an impressive assortment of bite-size macaroons, madeleines, and chocolates. Ask for table 29, for its eastward view over all the major monuments in Paris. Even on a foggy day, you can see Notre Dame.
