One of the oldest restaurants in Paris, Pavillon Ledoyen first opened its doors 1792 and was the place to see and be seen during the Belle Époque. Today, the rich décor harks back to its historical legacy with ornate stucco details and silk brocades, but the real pièce de résistance here is the stunning French haute cuisine. Earning the top mark of three Michelin stars, the restaurant serves modern dishes inspired by classical French fare from Chef Yannick Alléno. Alléno’s signature dishes include langoustine tart with caviar grains and a wagyu beef leaf while there is particular detail paid to the jus and sauces. Pavillon Ledoyen has achieved reader recognition in Elite Traveler‘s Top 100 Restaurants in the World.
