In s e a rc h o f a m e m o r a b l e d i n n e r, we we re d i re c t e d to Lazare, a modern bistro owned by celebrated chef Eric Frechon. Situated in the lobby of the renovated Gare Saint- Lazare, a grand 19th century railway station, this impeccable establishment offers updated takes on classic French cuisine, such as deviled eggs, quenelles de brochet and the most extraordinary steak tartare. As it happened, the chef was sitting with his delightful family at the table right next to ours, and naturally we fell into conversation. The following evening found us at Chef Frechon's 114 Faubourg, his Michelin-starred restaurant a short walk from the Champs Elysées. Needless to say, the experience was extraordinary, offering contemporary haute cuisine in a more formal, but still relaxed, setting. With its impeccable service, exquisite appointments and centuries of history, Relais Christine is a romantic spot in which to while away a few days on la Rive Gauche. Our expectations upon arrival were high, and they were exceeded in every way. sl For more information, visit and e dining room at Michelin-starred 114 Faubourg Guests may enjoy coffee and croissants in the lobby breakfast area A selection of Chef Eric Frechon's creations at 114 Faubourg, Paris 89
