Alan Richman wrote an article for GQ a few months ago where he featured his favorite five restaurants in the world. He highlighted Le Louis XV as not just his personal favorite, but "best restaurant in the world" when food, ambience, and service are all considered.
I had the chance to visit recently myself, and was pretty much blown away. I've been to my fair share of hyped restaurants in the US, good and bad, but for me this was a wholly different experience, and I felt very much inclined to agree with Mr. Richman.
I'd love to hear opinions from others, particularly from those who can compare it to a broader experience of other Michelin three stars or Gault Millau almost-20s.
