here's the situation. i will be in paris in june (i'm the one with the beef allergy--just the flesh, i can do broth) and will be showing around a couple friends--one is vegetarian, the other is allergic to seafood.
we'd like to splurge on either the new Ducasse experience at Jules Verne or at L'astrance. first of all, no beef or seafood is ok, but i'm worreid the vegetarian issue will be a problem.
secondly, if we want to do the menu surprise at l'astrance do you think they're gonna think we're @ssholes if we give them this laundry list of dietary constraints?
