Chez Savy hasn't changed much, if at all, since its inception in 1923. Located near the famed Champs-Elysées in the Eighth Arrondissement, this quintessential French bistro serves original cuisine from Auvergne among traditional Art Deco touches of Jazz Age Paris. Moleskin banquettes sit atop mosaic tile floors; mirrors line the walls. High end clientele fill the narrow dining rooms (one of which is known as Le Wagon, the dining car). After the bread basket and accompanying rillettes (duck spread) have been savored, signature farçon aveyronnais (herb fritters) and aligot boeuf aubrac (beef with potatoes and cheese) take center stage.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
