This maze of candlelit rooms inside a vine-clad 17th-century townhouse is overwhelmingly romantic. Ceilings are beamed, furnishings are antique, and background classical music mingles with the intimate chatter of diners. As in the days when Marlene Dietrich dined here, advance reservations are essential.

Timeless French dishes include Burgundy snails, steak tartare and bœuf bourguignon, finished off with fabulous cheeses sourced from fromagerie (cheese shop) Quatrehomme and a silken crème brûlée.

Le Coupe-Chou, incidentally, has nothing to do with cabbage (chou) ; rather it’s named after the barber’s razor once wielded with a deft hand in one of its seven rooms.
