Took a trip to this restaurant at the recommendation of our hotel and exceeded our expectations. The owner was hands on, accommodating,witty, funny but most of all a food genius. You have to have the scallops. The presentation is amazing. We will be back

Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National

famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
