The venerable ‘Silver Tower’ is famous for its caneton (duckling), rooftop garden with glimmering Notre Dame views and a fabulous history harking back to 1582 – from Henry III’s inauguration of the first fork in France to inspiration for the winsome animated film Ratatouille . Its wine cellar is one of Paris’ best; dining is dressy and exceedingly fine.

Reserve eight to 10 days ahead for lunch, three weeks ahead for dinner – and don’t miss its chocolate and coconut sphere with banana and lime sorbet for dessert. Buy fine food and accessories in its boutique directly across the street.
