Tucked away in the old-world Passage des Panoramas, this delightful spot attracts the eye with a giant wall mural of French actor Louis de Funès (in his iconic role as Mr. Septime in the 1966 movie Le Grand Restaurant). Patrons are reeled in with fabulous duck dishes—foie gras, confit de canard, and magret—all washed down with hand-picked champagne from the region’s best small producers. The concept is fabulous, especially since it won’t break the bank: The set menus, which include two or three courses and up to three glasses of champagne, start at 32€. Reserve in advance or arrive early (noon for lunch, 7pm for dinner).
