Sometimes Paris is about embracing the clichés, and dining on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower is definitely a cliché worth embracing. Not only are the views magnificent, with the city’s iconic rooftops undulating in graceful higgledy-piggledydom between Trocadéro, Les Invalides, and La Défense’s skyscrapers, but now that award-winning chef Frédéric Anton has taken over the kitchen, the food is worth writing home about, too. Try wonders like langoustine ravioli in tarragon sauce, vanilla-salted pigeon, and a bitter chocolate soufflé—all beautifully presented to evoke (in the words of the chef) “the cogs, the nuts, and bolts” of the Eiffel Tower. The 135€ weekday three-course lunch menu is a steal. For an extra dose of romance, splurge at night when the city sparkles at your feet. Reservations are required at least 2 months in advance.
