Le Coucou
The city’s best new restaurant, Le Coucou, comes from a Philadelphia-based restaurateur and is helmed by a Chicagoan chef who’s spent half his life living in France. Part Escoffier-inspired haute cuisine, part brightly flavored midcentury nouvelle cuisine, chef Daniel Rose’s menu is unmistakable old-school French. 138 Lafayette St., 212.271.4252

Miss Paradis
Renowned French restaurateur Claude Louzon has launched his first New York restaurant collaboration, Miss Paradis, with design visionary Philippe Starck. The restaurant, serving seasonal Mediterranean-influenced cuisine, highlights an art-focused interior design, which includes a 30-foot-wide Murano glass chandelier made by artist Aristide Najean and a 9-foot-tall chrome apple atop the building’s roof created by artist Suzanne Couture. 47 Prince St., 646.329.6380

Caviar Kaspia
This winter, enjoy a taste of Paris right in the heart of Tribeca. Open now through mid-February, iconic Parisian cult caviar destination Caviar Kaspia has landed stateside with a pop-up at Spring Place, the recently opened innovative, co-working club that offers specially curated cultural programming. Caviar, lox, vintage Champagnes, vodkas and their signature roe-topped baked potato will satiate the refined taste buds of the invitation-only patrons. 6 St. Johns Lane, 212.257.5600
