More than just a deluxe brasserie, the Fouquet's is a Parisian institution. Our latest president went there for dinner on the night he was elected! You get the picture...
With its long room dating from 1899 (classed as an historical monument) running alongside the Champs Elysées, it's great for people watching (and - more importantly - for being seen) in summer or winter.
Known as a haunt for artistic types, especially big French movie stars, the entrance has a list of those who have won a César (our equivalent of the Oscars), and the story behind Fouquet's would probably make a good movie itself: three people have been fighting a legal battle for nearly fifty years, claiming that the Fouquet's empire belongs to them (although it has long been sold to a company in Koweit). After many contradictory rulings, the litigation is still ongoing...
If you want a top class meal (with prices to match), the Fouquet's would be the place.
