So I'm an NYCer going to Paris with my dad in a few weeks. I've read and re-read the boards and could not be more confused. We'll be there for 5 days and are staying at the Hotel Mayfair on Rue Rouget de L’Isle. We'd love some recommendations for great local casual within walking distance but also for at least one muti, Michelin-starred restaurant.
At first I thought it should be Taillevent for dinner, then I was persuaded to think it should be Guy Savoy for lunch. And now I'm thinking it should be Plaza Athénée, L'Ambroise, or Pierre Gagnaire. What gives?
To say that I'm confused is a gross understatement. We don't want stuffy and we don't enjoy heavy, but we do want an amazing dining experience that we'll remember for the rest of our lives. Please help! And if you know of any, please throw in some bistro or other suggestions around our hotel. Have heard good things about 404 and Le Florimond.
So many thanks!
