La Cigale Récamier

The place in Paris to savor soufflé, France’s iconic dish.

The soufflé has been a staple on French menus since the eighteenth century and it’s the only choice on this restaurant’s menu—both in savory and sweet iterations. They have mastered the technique with each spoonful as it should be—an airy cloud with a gentle mouthfeel. Head to La Cigale Récamier and happily cross this signature dish off your culinary to-do list.

Bitesee Tip: If you want to be efficient with your culinary sightseeing head to La Grande Épicerie de Paris and Poilâne, the legendary boulangerie, before or after your soufflé.
