Best Place to Pretend You're In Paris: Bizou Brasserie at Le Meridien

Best Place to Pretend You're In Paris

The noise and service are reminiscent of Chez L’Ami Louis in the 3rd arrondissement. The thick slab of perfectly sautéed foie gras floating on fig jam-smeared brioche French toast is like crack. The tomato tart is also addictive, a creamy wonder with the unexpected marriage of goat cheese, lavender/wild fennel pollen and oven-dried tomatoes. Add quintessential hanger steak and pastries to die for and your daydream of the “city of light” springs to life.
