Contemporary restaurants in Paris

Female star chefs are a rarity in Paris, but Hélène Darroze is a stellar exception. These premises house both her elegant Michelin-starred restaurant upstairs and this relaxed downstairs salon renowned for its multicourse tasting menus, where dishes reflect Darroze’s native southwestern France, such as wood-grilled foie gras.
On a quiet street with summertime tables, this pocket-sized restaurant is a lovely spot to dine tête à tête. Transparent Kartell chairs and deep-purple table tops complement the stylised menu, which fuses traditional French with world food such as sesame-encrusted tuna, beef bourguignon with caramelised carrots, and squid pan-fried with Espelette peppers.
