With a menu by acclaimed chef Alain Ducasse, the cuisine of Louis XV offers a peek at what Louis XV might have enjoyed. Located in the ritzy Hôtel de Paris, Louis XV requires jackets, ties, and a hefty pocketbook. Based on the price to dine, this is definitely a special-occasion spot, but not one that will soon be forgotten.
"I would eat the vegetarian tasting menu; it would blow you away how good it is," said Batali. Lunches start at $180 and dinners at $260.
