Paris restaurant with Michelin stars, but no dress code required?


Please, can someone recommend a nice Paris restaurant with 1-3 Michelin Stars without dress code? I will travel in decent clothing, but not in suit and tie.

Something like Taillevent, Lasserre, etc.

Thank you very much, merci.

  1. I have been to taillevent. You can get away with nice slacks, dress shirt, jacket. No need for tie or suit. This is pretty much the vibe at most of these places.

    1. The 3 star places are pretty formal (with the possible exception of Astrance), but many of the 1 star places are informal. In the 2 star category you could probably get away with casual dress at Helene Darroze, Senderens and Table de Joel Robuchon and possibly Carre des Feuillants.

      1. imho you will feel out of place / underdressed in a fine restaurant when you are not dressed as the other diners. why hot just pack a tie in case you need it? what's the big deal?

          Yes, that's what I exactly thought... Thank you all, will try to adapt.

        2. Taillevent or Ducasse or Meurice would totally lend you a jacket if you need one. Just come decent and then that's their problem.
