The Eiffel Tower: Les Cocottes

If your budget isn't big enough for Alain Ducasse's Le Jules Verne inside the Tower, opt for Les Cocottes, Christian Constant's no-reservations counter just off Paris's Champs de Mars. The cocottes here—mini cast-iron pots containing entire meals—justify the (inevitable) wait. We loved: Confit lamb shoulder.
