Pierre Gagnaire

33-01-58-36-12-50

Very well known, chef Pierre Gagnaire serves high-priced, modern cuisine at his flagship 3-Star Michelin restaurant on rue Balzac. Despite its lofty price tag, the restaurant has a surprisingly informal interior with a wood-and-gray dining room. Preferring to put the food center stage — dishes are often so complex they require a multi-line menu description — the team of in-house chefs specializes in creative and unexpected taste and texture combinations. Durably popular menu selections include the Britanny lobster and the dazzling seven-course Grand Dessert.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Housed in a wooden structure modeled on a traditional Emirati home, this spot overlooking the Persian Gulf has amazing views of the man-made Palm Jumeirah island. The menu reflects its waterside setting with imaginatively prepared seafood, like seared scallops in crispy pancetta.

We loved: Wild sea bass with artichoke ravioli and saffron cream.

Insider tip: The terrace tables have the best views.
