In researching new and exciting places to dine in Paris, I remembered one of the best meals I've ever had, at La Fontaine Gaillon. Situated in the 2nd arrondissement, the location is idyllic, in la Place Gaillon. The owner, whom you may know of (wink), takes great care in selecting the menu, and it changes frequently to accomodate the best possible fare, and focuses on classic cuisine. I was with my Mom, and we were delighted with the food, and we thought the prices were very reasonable for such an elegant experience. I was impressed with their wine list, which focused on small, locally owned vineyards. Across the way is their second restaurant…L'ecaille de la Fontaine, which is more intimate and feels like you are just hanging out with Gérard. Ah yes, the owner I mentioned would be Gérard Depardieu.
