The Jardin du Luxembourg, or the Luxembourg Gardens, is the second largest public park in Paris, and one of top must visit attractions in Paris. The park is the garden of the French Senate, which is itself housed in the Luxembourg Palace.

The first Parisian venture of the world renowned Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Market is centrally located and was designed by the minimalist interior designer Christian Liaigre. He prefers to use basic materials such as wood and stone giving the venue an earthy feel. Huge bay windows open out into an interior courtyard, and ethnic masks and other objects from Africa and Polynesia decorate the interior. There is a raw bar in the restaurant serving oysters, fish carpaccios and other uncooked delicacies. The banquettes in beige leather surround beautifully laid tables. The terrace is delightful for both lunch and dinner and VIPs are attracted by the chef's table hidden near the kitchens. The young chef Wim Van Gorp has already spent several years training with Jean-Georges in New York and is now at the height of his career. The food is a fusion of French, Italian and Asian producing mouth-watering and beautifully presented dishes.
Mentored by Georges Blanc, Samuel Cavagnis chose to open an elegant place with fine china and a bar for drinking champagne before dinner. The well-traveled Cavagnis opts to use spices and herbs, having also placed potted herbs on every table. He uses dill and pink peppercorns to flavour his salmon rillettes, which have been spooned into large pasta shells. Even dessert has a nice touch to it - Cavagnis adds pink almond praline, the French equivalent of Cracker Jacks, to his Ã®le flottante, a meringue in liquorice-spiked custard sauce. As good for a business meal as it is for a tÃªte-Ã -tÃªte, Le Versance will also make cigar smokers happy with its well-stocked fumoir. Coffee, a selection of rare teas and digestifs are served here after dinner.
Just a short walk from the Champ de Mars, this traditional Corsican restaurant has begun to make a name for itself. The atmosphere is sophisticate and cultural with large bookshelves full of books.
