We are going to Paris Dec 27-Jan 5. After much reading and good advice from the 'hounds, I'd settled on Guy Savoy for our 3-star lunch. I received my Michelin Red book yesterday, and discovered that it will be closed during our stay. I am very torn regarding a second choice. The primary reason I settled on Guy Savoy over the other options was what people have said about the customer oriented, convivial atmosphere. What is a good alternative? (L'Astrance, Arpege?) If a 2-star meets our atmosphere + food combination better than the remaining 3-stars, I'm certainly willing to consider those as well. Thanks so much!
