Epicure is a triple Michelin-starred restaurant overseen by Eric Frechon. It was Nicolas Sarkozy’s favourite haunt when he was in office, and the food is positively ambrosial. Chiefly drawing on French produce and tradition, starters might include stuffed macaroni with black truffle followed by Bresse pigeon. At €295, the seven-course tasting menu is for serious gourmands only. A much more affordable option, with its own street entrance (and Michelin star), is 114 Faubourg next door, which serves imaginative brasserie-style cooking prepared in an open kitchen.
