FRANCE 24 goes behind the scenes at La Tour d'Argent, one of the oldest and best-known restaurants in Paris, with a look in the kitchen, wine cellar and the famous dining room with its incomparable views of the city.
French restaurant 'La Tour d'Argent' claims a history going back to the late 16th century, and its famous views of Paris inspired the animated film Ratatouille. A favourite haunt of royals and celebrities, as much for its signature dishes as its spectacular view over Notre Dame, the restaurant is at the very heart of Paris in every way.
FRANCE 24 visited the restaurant for a chat with the chef, the sommelier (in charge of the vast wine cellar) and the floor manager about what makes La Tour d'Argent the French capital's most important restaurant. Listen to our audio slideshow to find out what goes on behind the scenes:
