I am currently i Paris and have been tasked with selecting a restaurant for the visit of 8 friends in mid October. In other words there will be 9 guys dining on a Friday night and we are looking for a gourmet eperience without (completely) blowing the bank. Hopefully there is someone out there who will be able to help!
Most of us live in Oslo so we are used to high prices, but I think we would like to limit the food portion of the meal to €100ish +/-
An ideal place for us would have little or no dress code, allow people to talk above a whisper, have creative food, accept reservations for 9, and offer degustation (or equivalent) menus. We are looking for more dishes than entrée, plat, dessert.
Current options that I am investigating are:
le violon d'ingres
L'atelier Joel Robuchon
Pierre Gagnaire (too expensive I believe...)
Chez les anges
L'Astrance (too expensive I believe...)
Comments on these or other suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks!
