If you prefer to get away from the more traditional bistros and are keen to try a trendy, chic and classy alternative, don’t miss out on a trip to La Gare. At number 19 on Chausseé de la Muette, this modern restaurant is built inside a former train station, hence its current name (“gare” meaning “station” in French). Its open-plan dining area seats 250 guests and its décor is meticulously designed, down to the smallest detail. Every Sunday from noon to 3pm it serves a lavish buffet-style bunch for 39 euros, whilst prices on the daily menus vary between 19 and 39 euros. It offers inventive and seasonal cuisine with dishes such as Scottish salmon tart with avocado and mango, ravioli in a black truffle sauce or breast of duck with ginger and sweet potato mash.
