Les Bouquinistes information
This stylish eating space courtesy of Guy Savoy sits across from Notre Dame and the Seine-side booksellers. Modern but elegant décor aside, its menu lures gourmets with tantalising dishes such as Brittany crab ravioli with lobster and fennel in a lemongrass juice, veal shank or a spiced duck filet. Don’t torture yourself over which dessert to pick – the dessert for two (€20) features a tiny tasty morsel of each.
