I am taking a last minute trip to Paris in a couple of weeks and I have booked Le Bristol for lunch, but I really have no idea what to expect. How does it compare to Guy Savoy, Le Cinq, and other 3 stars? I am quite familiar with the hotel, having stayed there many years ago with my family; not a bad first taste of Paris. But other than having one or two breakfast meetings there over the past few years, for some reason, I have never considered trying their restaurant.
Additionally, I am considering trying La Grande Cascade; do they have a prix fixe lunch offering similar to most other 2 and 3 stars? Would you recommend it for lunch dining solo?
On a related note, does anybody know when L'Astrance is reopening in August; I really love it and have not been in a few years. I will be in Paris until the end of the month, and I would love to try to sneak in if they are open.
