Restaurant Guy Savoy
This 18th-century building that used to be the mint still holds treasure: It now houses the three-Michelin-starred Guy Savoy. Dark-colored walls set off the contemporary art and large windows frame views of the Seine, setting the stage for an evening of culinary theater in which a cast of waiters, assistants, and sommeliers attend to thrilling your taste buds. M. Savoy is a generous man whose personality is revealed in his playful and artful dishes, like foie gras served as lollipops, sea bass with a flavorful crunch, and a deceptively simple brioche laced with truffles. The chef’s largesse continues with one table set aside for a 100€ (about $118) lunch (sign up on the website for a chance to sit there), making it possible for mere mortals to partake in his heavenly meals.
