La Couronne

One of the oldest inns in France, dating from 1345, this charming bourgeois restaurant in Rouen is lush with geraniums, leaded glass, sculpted wood beams, marble chimneys, leather chairs and damask curtains. Celebrities Sophia Loren, John Wayne, Jean-Paul Sartre, Salvador Dalí, Princess Grace of Monaco, Julia Child and more have dined here. But the real stars are on Vincent Taillefer’s menu: lobster stew with chestnuts, sheep’s feet and duck in blood sauce. Since the release of the film “Julia and Julia,” fans of the film order the same dishes Julia Child and her husband, Paul, ate in 1948: six oysters, sole meuniere, green salad, fromage blanc with berries and coffee, accompanied by a half bottle of Pouilly Fume.
