16-18 place Gaillon, Paris, 75002, France

Opened by Charles Drouant in 1880, this storied restaurant in Place Gaillon occupies the same building it has since its 19th-century founding as a tobacco bar. Attracting a fashionable high-society crowd by the turn of the century, Drouant became a hang-out for literary elites and the site of the awarding of the Prix Goncourt, a prestigious French literary prize. With period detail — an original wrought-iron staircase is still in residence — Drouant attracts stock-exchange workers lunchtimes and opera goers evenings. Chef Antoine Westermann's menu favors fresh seafood and provencal vegetables, alongside French hors d'oeuvres and a popular oyster bar.
