Description: Tucked away inside the fabulously chic L'H��tel in Paris��� Saint-Germain-des-Pr��s, Le Restaurant is a heady food-hedonists dream. The plush olive and ochre dining room, complete with a skylight and marble columns, is the epitome of opulence and sophistication. Le Restaurant���s Head chef Philippe B��lissent - formerly of the three-starred restaurant Ledoyen - is renowned for his interpretation of classically French seasonal cuisine. Popular dishes on his Michelin-starred menu include duck foie gras with sangria and Mirabelle plums and the pigeon casserole with grated beets and mash. Le Restaurant de L'H��tel is popular with Parisians and tourists alike, who come here to celebrate almost any occasion in some of the most opulent surroundings in Paris. There are four-course and seven-course ���Surprise��� meals organised by the chef, a temptation not to be resisted. And the service is widely believed to approach perfection, from the greeting at the front desk to the final whisking away of l���addition.
