So I have to go to Paris for a quick meeting. Will be staying Saturday night and might try to meet a friend there, but at this late time I am not sure if he's free. Having no contacts in the City of Light I would like to know where you would recommend going for a solo dinner on a Saturday night. My last trip was corporate sponsored and I ate a lot of "conference food" with little interesting about it.
My tastes tend to run to French/Spanish/Med. I am looking for a bit of a splurge here, an interesting and lively room, modern cuisine. Bar seating OK. To be clear, I am not looking for a great hole-in-the-wall place for this meal but something with a little "pop"
