France is extremely popular when it comes to fine eating. To the French the art of fine-dining is "gastronomy" and the world knows it by the French expression "haute cuisine." When translated to English, the expression loses its sophistication and charm. You'll find some of the world's very best restaurants in Paris, some of them flaunting multiple Michelin stars.

Acclaimed chef Pascal Barbot's restaurant on a cobbled side street in the 16th arrondissement, 4 rue Beethoven is well-worth persistence. This high-ceilinged dining room with mirrored walls, widely spaced tables and friendly service offers a decidedly 21st-century take on French haute cuisine.

The Chicago-born chef Daniel Rose moved from the 9th arrondissement to a renovated 17th-century house in Les Halles in July 2010. The Parisians have been drooling over his dishes out of which Basque country trout with avocado and coriander flowers and the grilled New Caledonian prawns on a bed of shaved baby fennel are a must have.
