So after lots of research chatting it up with friends and on line at trip advisor I thought I would post the results over here............
we are a family of three with our fairly sophisticated 14 year old boy - since early on our focus for the most part is on the brasserie - we dabbled with trendy du jour but heard too many negative anti american comments on places like josephine chez dumont and that the constants are full of themselves lol.
we were influenced by geography/planned itinerary a little and were of course hugely impacted by the fact that we are there in august which knocked out some and very disappointingly so - especially places like Les Bouqinistes and 6 New York..........ah well next time!
We are also getting joined by friends on the weekend and one couple will have their little one year old with them - so price and the ability to handle our group - along with wanting to be close to our hotel the friday night were all considerations for two dinners.
So here goes:
- Le Cuisine de Philippe
- Le Train Bleu
- Le Voltaire
- Les Etangs de Corot “Café des Artistes”
- Brasserie Thoumieux
- Le Pharamond
- Le Grand Colbert
- Chez Flottes (with group)
- La Coupole (with group)
- Epicure / Le Bristol - last night of a wonderful 3 week vacation - going out with a bang!
Would be curious on comments - the list has pretty much been vetted on TA but interested on the take of this forum.
