Much like the iconic landmarks nearby, Le Voltaire is a classic Paris bistro that stands the test of time in the chic 7eme arrondisement. Perhaps the restaurant’s riverfront location, emerald green awning, and shiny wood paneling outside gives rise to the high prices. Still, patrons return for the high quality food and the romantic interior (wood paneling, golden lighting, intimate tables). Some come for the entrée-sized les salades with delicacies such as lobster, avocado, and deviled eggs. Other mains include the beef tenderloin au poivre, roast chicken, and herb omelette.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
