Eating solo at a Michelin Starred restaurant

mkmoe | May 10, 201708:45 AM     28

Hello,

I am traveling to Lyon, France for business in June, and I was able to secure a reservation for 3 at Paul Bocuse's restaurant. However, the other 2 people are dropping out for different reasons which is a huger bummer for me. Would it be strange if I went by myself (I can modify the booking)? How would the restaurant view it? Would they rather book a 2-top rather than 1? It certainly is a bit odd to partake in a hedonistic occasion alone but I've always wanted to go to this place. Has anyone gone to a fancy place solo? How was it?
