I posted recently seeking recommendations for a good New Year's Eve "splurge" restaurant in the 5th, 6th or 7th. Though I didn't receive any replies on this board, I have done some independent research in the meantime. We have checked with several "one-star" restaurants regarding their New Year's Eve "prix fixe" menus, and we are finding that prices tend to range between 250 and 300 euro per person, not including wine.
I understand that New Year's Eve in Paris tends to be celebrated more luxuriously than here in the States, and that restaurants commonly prepare a special feast that is more elaborate than their typical menu. However, 250-300 euro per person seems awfully high. Is this simply what we should expect, or are there some nice restaurants that offer more affordable prices? Would love to be enlightened about this ... thanks!
