André Malraux, Salvador Dalí, Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich—the list of celebrities who have dined at this legendary restaurant is understandably long. What famous person wouldn’t want to eat in this superb dining room, where the ceiling opens when the weather is willing? The room is elegance incarnate, with walls decked in bold toile de jouy-style bird scenes, and tables laden with fine porcelain and silver knickknacks. Famous chef Michel Roth has recently brought new life to the classic menu, adding his own subtle creations such as lobster roasted with chestnuts and honey and served with saffron gnocchi, or sweet and sour duck with citrus-glazed turnips. Reserve at least 2 weeks ahead. Dinner jackets required for men.
