Restaurant Le Grand Véfour is a classic in Paris, found at the north end of Jardin du Palais Royal. According to Fodor's review, "Victor Hugo could stride in and still recognize this restaurant, which was in his day, as now, a contender for the title of most beautiful restaurant in Paris." Built in 1784, the elegant mirrored ceiling has reflected the passings of Paris' famous and infamous over the centuries.

One reviewer said that the prices are as extravagant as the decor... Peter, Holly, and I only snapped photos from outside... tant pis pour nous.
