The definitive roundup of the finest and most attractive restaurants in France. Prominent restaurant critic Gilles Pudlowski leads the reader on a tour across the heartland of gourmet dining, sharing menu selections from his favorite restaurants along with the stories behind the accomplished chefs and their kitchens. The thirty-five featured restaurants have been selected based on the quality of the food, the beauty of the decor, and the restaurant's unique history. Highlights include: Michel Bras's ultramodern restaurant on a hilltop in Laguiole; the Louis XV in Monaco, where chef Franck Cerutti takes full advantage of his Mediterranean setting; Helene Darroze's twin establishment in Paris, featuring a two-Michelin-starred dining room upstairs and a relaxed bistro on the ground floor; and the famed Maison Troisgros in Roanne, which Zagat lists as the best restaurant in the world. Illustrated with Maurice Rougemont's enticing photographs, this finely-researched bible of French gastronomy offers a feast for the eyes. Featured chefs include Paul Bocuse, Alain Ducasse, and Guy Savoy, and each has divulged a few of their signature recipes to enjoy at home. A list of addresses to the restaurants completes the book for readers who want to embark on their own gourmet tour of the finest in French dining experiences.
