I will be in Paris in some weeks and I would like to have two lunches. I will surely go to Pierre Gagnaire if I manage to get a table(booking for December is not available now).
Then for my second lunch I m thinking about L'Arpege. I have a few hesitations due to the mixed reviews I have read, some say it is magnificent, some give really bad reviews. I think the lunch is about 140. Can I dine in L'Arpege without wine? Do you think I ll feel comfortable as a (first time) single diner? I heard lunch is over 3 hours.
Instead of L'Arpege I consider L'epicure and Ledoyen to be my closest alternatives.
