In 2010, the Chicago-born chef Daniel Rose moved his hit market-driven restaurant to the historic Les Halles. Out of an open kitchen, he cooks always-changing, highly inventive prix fixe menus with dishes like smoked eel with pickled baby eggplant.

American expat Daniel Rose cooks four nights a week (and sometimes at lunchtime) for 16 lucky guests at this minimalist restaurant with butcher-block tables. In a tiny open kitchen, the 30-year-old, dressed-in-black chef prepares a sensational four-course market-based dinner menu that changes every single night.
We loved: White asparagus with foie gras; duck breast with silky carrot puree.
