OK Paris hounds..here's the deal: While I'm familiar with the better ** and *** restaurants in Paris, I'm less up to speed on their price points as compared to the experts on this board. I have a client who will be in Paris for just two night in late October. We've agreed their dinners should include one traditional bistro (I'm advising Josephine) and one Michelin-star restaurant. While I know the great value is some of the lunch tasting menus, they don't want to decommission themselves for a complete afternoon given their short time in the city. They are in their mid-40s and quite into great food, but even moreso into great wines and exceptional pairings. I think they would do best with a relatively informal restaurant (I realize it's all relative in this category!) and I don't think they'd want a spot that might be too far on the cutting edge. But it doesn't have to be super traditional either. The budget is somewhat flexible for a truly memorable experience, but probably only up to 250 Euros per person for two. Your counsel is most appreciated. Cheers!
