The food was marvelous, from succulent scallops to first rate boeuf Rossini to amazing crepes suzette. The family produced champaign and cognac and orange liquor add perfect accompaniment to the fine food. Moreover the service was warm, personal and attentive. Must return!

This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
