    French chef Alain Ducasse would never permit mediocrity in any of his establishments; Le Jules Verne, located 410 feet above Paris on the second platform of the Eiffel Tower, is no exception. In early 2007, Ducasse won a nine-year contract with the city of Paris to operate the restaurant. Specialties: The tower bolt, a hexagonal cake of dark-chocolate praline with a side of hazelnut ice cream, serves as a clever (and delicious) reflection of the surroundings.
