This trendy dining destination in the Les Fleurs Hotel is a perfect example of a restaurant on the cutting edge. Even so, it has its silly excesses, like a 6m-wide (20-ft.) semicircular marble staircase subtly lit with fiber optics that descends into the restaurant from the lobby so seamlessly (and without handrails) that you could unknowingly take a header leaving the reception desk. But the menu is well thought out and the wine list robust, so opt for the glass elevator, which will safely transport you to the ultramodern space. Le Bouquet's ambitious menu lists dishes like rabbit filet on a bed of iceberg lettuce and carrots, beef filet with gooseliver and king prawns, or scallops poached in Roederer champagne. Bring your 401K to pay the steep prices (for Bulgaria).
