Located in the landmark Grand Palais exhibition hall, trendy Mini Palais is not your run-of-the-mill museum restaurant. The main-floor dining room, a cavernous space dressed up with vibrant textiles and deconstructed crystal chandeliers, overlooks both the art exhibits and the Seine's leafy esplanade—a dramatic showcase for chef Anthony Germani's fanciful cuisine. Germani, an alumnus of L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, changes his menu with the seasons; there might be creatively plated renditions of sashimi-style beef, roasted day-boat cod, or spicy guinea fowl with red pepper fajitas. Among the desserts, the house specialty is Crazy Pot, a confection of meringue, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and hot chocolate sauce. Although the à la carte prices are steep (about $65 to $100 per person), the $25 weekday prix-fixe lunch is a good value: It includes the entrée du jour, a glass of wine, and a good Café Malongo espresso. Even if the food weren't noteworthy, eating here amidst the media and advertising crowd that occupies the tables all day long would be fun. Reserve a couple of days in advance.

Open daily 8:30 am to midnight.
