The celebrity chef is taking haute cuisine to Eiffel Tower. Alain Ducasse’s new endeavor — called the Jules Verne, like the restaurant it replaced — opens for its first dinner Saturday. "I think our only alternative in this monument is to be 100 percent French," Alain Ducasse told The Associated Press. So what exactly is his vision of modern French cuisine? "Beautiful products, perfect technique, perfect harmony, a few precise, reduced sauces, (everything) in harmony with French wines," he said. Ducasse, who has 16 Michelin stars and more than 20 restaurants around the world, says the menu price is "accessible to everyone": about $108 for lunch and $216 for dinner, without wine.
