Does it worth the effort, "Culinary" wise ? Toying with the idea of finding one high end place for a possible spectacular lunch (or dinner..) tasting menu at a starred place in the Valley. May i find there a place that will have this for a more reasonable price then possibly more expensive places in Paris? Like a one of a kind expirience, more or less, in a pretty accessible place from Paris (maybe not Loire area)? A friend ate a couple of years ago at such place in the Loire, but came from Paris with her French host, and cannot remember the name :-( It was like a multi 20+ courses for about 150 E in a starred place, which sounds a bit imaginery for me but maybe there are some places like that :-)
Or maybe i should try to do something similar in direction of Normandy, but not sure doing it in one day makes a lot of logic..
