BIG AT HEART: Don't let the name fool you. Mini Palais, the new eatery at the Grand Palais, is hardly your typical cramped Paris bistro. In fact, the contemporary decor is monumental, with 23-foot ceilings, massive light fixtures and 4,300 square feet of dining space spread over dark concrete floors. There's even a large terrace overlooking the Alexandre III bridge. Young French chef Gilles Choukroun created a menu open to all gastronomical cultures. The foie gras flirts with popcorn or peanuts, while the chicken is poached and served with caramelized tomatoes, chorizo and dates.
Mini Palais: Perron Alexandre III, Avenue Winston Churchill 75008; +33-1-42-56-42-42.
