Drouant — Elegance in Paris

Situated in a quiet pocket of the Second Arrondissement in Place Gaillon, a voiturier greets you to the door at Drouant — one of the more elegant dining spots in Paris.  Antoine Westermann has made a splash with his cuisine that is built on style and finesse, and excellent service is the mark at this elegant restaurant.

His foie gras poelee with port and cherries is excellent, as his his steak au poivre, and poitrine du porc (pork belly).  Drouant also offers a wide menu, including various starters of four, and the same for dessert.  We had a selection of nem (a French version of an Asian eggroll), salmon and other treats, but the dessert was crazy — the best warm mousse au chocolate I have ever had, and the same for a chocolate millefeuille, chocolate sorbet, and chocolate tarte.

The wine list is extensive, with some values in the 50Euro range up to marquee bottles over 2,000 Euros, depending upon your liking.  It also has a reasonably priced children’s menu for only 15 Euros (entree, plat and dessert).

Open seven days a week.  Reservations are required.
