1 p.m., Carré des Feuillants
The elegance of this converted 17th century convent reflects chef Alain Dutournier’s impeccable cuisine. Go for lunch to experience the magic without breaking the bank…too badly. Prix fixe lunch, $115 – $235. 14 rue de Castiglione, 1er. 01-42-86-82-82.

9 p.m., Taillevent
Paris’s longest-running three-star restaurant was downgraded recently to two stars – the horror! – but Chef Alain Soliveres still wows with scallops meunière and spelt risotto with truffles and frog legs. Mains, $45 – $120. 15 rue Lamennais, 8e. 01-44-95-15-01.
12 a.m., Le Méridien Montparnasse
From the panoramic window of your 25th floor room, plan restaurant routes or simply count the bohemian cafés that dot the Left Bank. Tomorrow, sleep in and head downstairs to Restaurant Justine for the 100 percent local menu. 19 Rue du Commandant Mouchotte. 33-1-44-364436.
