Hello--we are planning a birthday lunch in Paris next October. We decided to have a lunch rather than dinner because I want a long, elegant, multi course, beautifully presented meal--and with jet lag from California, I am not sure I can handle an evening meal like that! And, of course, cost.
I am looking at Taillevant and Le Cinq, because I want a "dress up" kind of experience. We have plenty of superb food, casual setting in California.
We ate at Arpege on a previous trip and loved it, but the atmosphere is too subdued for what I want.
