The three-course €50 prix-fixe menu at the Relais Plaza, a fashion crowd favorite on the Avenue Montaigne for decades, seems like a very good buy. On the basis of a recent meal—crab and avocado cocktail, rack of lamb with baby vegetables, and a sublime délice de caramel—it’s going to be popular.
Hotel Plaza Athénée, 25 ave Montaigne, 8th, 01.53.67.64.00. Price is per person without wine
