Five Star Restaurants in Paris

The best restaurants in Paris are among the best in the world . While they are five-star in anyone's language, all these restaurants have three Michelin stars - the highest category.
Restaurants fight hard to gain and keep their Michelin stars. Historic hotel restaurants such as Le Meurice and Le Bristol seek out chefs who will move tradition forward and discover new takes on well-known dishes. Christian Le Squer of the Pavillion Ledoyen, the oldest restaurant in Paris, serves very modern food amid faded imperial grandeur, with dishes inspired by novels that have lists of ingredients as long as some menus.
One or two of these restaurants, such as L'Abroisie in the Place des Vosges, have a reputation for being snooty. But, in contrast, the tiny, informal L'Astrance with its lighter, Asian-influenced food, almost dispenses with menus altogether - you tell the chef how many courses you want to eat and he chooses the food. Frédéric Anton's dishes Le Pré Catelan have provoked strong reactions - even being called "too beautiful". Even more shocking in a land that loves meat, Alain Passard at L'Arpège, has chosen to foreground vegetables on his menus.
Two chefs who have built empires of haute cuisine, Guy Savoy and Pierre Gagnaire, reserve their names for their starriest restaurants here in Paris, while the ubiquitous Alain Ducasse, whose name appears on restaurants across the world from Hong Kong to the US, maintains a top-class establishment at the Plaza Athénée.
