Le Dôme

My wife and I both adore this restaurant and it is our go-to place in Paris for exquisite oysters, one of the finest fish soups money can buy, and their extraordinary fresh fish. On nearly every visit I enjoy their lobster salad, which blows away just about any other preparation I’ve seen over the years. We also shared wonderfully fresh Provençal-styled rougets that were simply grilled with some olive oil and herbs. We also enjoyed a fresh, Japanese-styled tartare de dorade. We washed all this down with one of the great Condrieus from 2010, André Perret’s Coteau du Chery. It is loaded with fruit, but also has the liquid granite-like component that comes from the decomposed granite hillsides where this vineyard is situated.

Le Dôme is expensive, but it is worth every cent in our opinion.
