Daroco

Two young restaurateurs, Julien Ross and Alexandre Giesbert, took over the Jean Paul Gaultier’s boutique shop on Rue Vivienne to create a high-end trattoria serving up “exceptional produce.” Located in a charming arcade, built in 1923, this Italian hotspot serves ultra fresh ingredients like a real trattoria! With heigh ceilings, raw bricks, blue velvet banquettes and beautiful green marble tabletops,  this new place is always a good idea.

A great new restaurant by Alain Ducasse: Champeaux. This hip bistrot is a design by Philippe Starck and located under La Canopée, a huge structure which contains 18.000 glass shells, in the area of Les Halles. As for the food, Champeaux serves traditional French dishes like snails, oysters, tartars and more.

Le Jules Verne

In order to remain the same style, this is another great restaurant by Alain Ducasse. In the evening, the atmosphere of the restaurant turns more sensual, which is surrounded by the iron base of the Eiffel Tower. Jules Verne is much more than a restaurant, when you go upstairs to enter this place, it is conductive to dreams and wonderful memories with great views on Paris.
