Restaurants in France

At the original Angelina location near the Louvre, patrons sit elbow-to-elbow in the Belle Époque dining room, with its sweeping archways, chandeliers, gold accents, and dramatic lighting.

With a kitsch but earnest Belle Epoque décor, Le Mably has its charm, especially abundant in the rich specialties, such as seared foie gras in cream sauce with apple rounds.

Simple Corsican cuisine, including the house specialty, lamb cooked in a wood- burning oven.

Tout Paris has been flocking of late to experience the zingy, citrus-inflected cuisine of this 2010-opened restaurant.

Near the Place du Trocadéro in the district of the Bastille, Cavestève specializes in small-scale producers and vintage champagnes.

Thierry Marx helms the kitchen at Château Cordeillan-Bages, a two-starred restaurant in Pauillac owned by Lynch-Bages winery. His reputation as both tireless innovator and spiritual leader of the region’s food renaissance lures many to the hotel’s sedate dining room.

The Dupuy family has lived in Sète for generations, and one of its descendants, painter and architect Gilles Dupuy, now runs the city’s most popular spot for oysters. A glass of Domaine de Font Mars, a prize-winning Picpoul white wine, is the perfect pairing.

Follow the advice of Julia Child and visit iconic patisserie Rollet Pradier. The stone building, with its large front windows filled with enticements, has been a part of the Seventh Arrondissement since 1859.
