Chez L’Ami Jean

Chez l'Ami Jean is a convivial bistro just steps from the Eiffel Tower. Known for its copious, Basque-inspired fare and brash, boisterous ambiance, this restaurant offers both à la carte options and a 78-euro "carte blanche" menu, created each day by Chef Stéphane Jégo. Whichever you choose, try (and yes, it'll be a feat) to save room for the house special rice pudding. Served in a generous bowl with nougatine and caramel, it's become such a fan favorite Jégo can't take it off the menu.
