The Eiffel Tower Gets The Star Chef Treatment
It's been my experience that restaurants with an amazing view are a mixed bag. Some are nothing special, assuming that you aren't there for the food as much as you are for the view, others go all out. The Jules Verne restaurant in the Eiffel Tower takes a move into the latter category with the announcement that star chef Alain Ducasse will be opening the newly updated restaurant next month. The restaurant has a view of Paris from the second level of the tower. The challenge for Ducasse was to create a restaurant that both tourists and locals would love. He also had to deal with the unusual requirements of the setting including furniture that met the tower's weight limits and a kitchen that cannot use gas that would produce flames.
