Fouquet's Restaurant Review:

The Fouquet's landmark status in Paris has earned it a spot on the "Monuments Historiques" (Historical Monuments) list. Its story starts in 1899 when Louis Fouquet purchased a small eatery for coach drivers on the corner of the prestigious Champs-Élysées and avenue George V. Soon it became the place to be and it has remained so through the years and the different proprietors; a highlight is the after-parties for the César and the Molières. Now in the hands of the French luxury hotel group Barrière, the restaurant, famous for its red canopy, has been rejuvenated by French decorator Jacques Garcia. Master chef Pierre Gagnaire oversees the menu that gives a nod to tradition with a twist of creativity. Items range from marinated mackerel and merlan Colbert (i.e. fried whiting served with cream and lemon) to Cognac-blazed beef fillet with pepper sauce, apple tart and chocolate fondant. Expect professional service and a wine list composed exclusively of French wines.
