we'll be visiting Pierre Gagnaire's restaurant in Paris in November for lunch and after all I have read and seen, Iam still unsure: is this a restaurant where the tasting menu is the best option, or should one go for some à-la-carte dishes?
To give an impression about our preferences: we love innovative/modern cuisine (like The Fat Duck or Alinea or L'Arnsbourg) but are kind of afraid of the big portions that french 3*-restaurants often serve – at Alain Ducasse in Paris I could not finish one single dish from the (wonderful) tasting menu, so insanely huge and heavy were the portions.
Our most beloved restaurant in Paris is Agapé Substance.
So, what do you think is the best way to experience Gagnaires cuisine and his "genius"?
