Paris is loaded with Alain Ducasse restaurants, but Benoit is one of the best.
It's an elegant little jewel box in the fourth arrondisement with a picture-perfect decor.
Food is first rate. The Foie Gras de Canard Confit was a dense disk of richness.
My Cassoulet Maison had big chunks of meat and sausage and a pile of white beans.
My companion's Saute Gourmand, served in a pot, had veal sweetbreads and chicken livers in a truffled jus.
Service was proper and prompt.
It's a splurge, but it's worth it.
