Well worth taking the road less travelled. L'Escargot 1903 was rewarded first Michelin star this year. Well deserving the honor. Located very close to Puteaux station at Western suburb of Paris. Lovely restaurant with terrace seating that would be perfect during warmer weather. Excellent service....More
