I am getting married in France in May 2009 and will likely be spending the honeymoon in France and Italy. I am very fascinated about all things food and wine so I take dining out very seriously. I have been doing research on all of the various highly acclaimed restaurants. I had initially wanted to try a 2-3-star restaurant in Paris as this is our first stop on our honeymoon and I wanted to have the full experience of dining at a top restaurant. However, none of the restaurants really felt just right as a place I had to go to. The truth is I'd like to go to all of them, but being that I'd be limited to one, none of them seemed to stand head and shoulders above the rest to me given the cost of the meal. I had been most interested in L'Astrance and L'Ambrosie among others, but none of these felt perfect. I had given up on trying any 3-star places figuring that I'd instead try to visit a number of the renowned bistros and Bib Gourmand places.

However, that was before I came across L'Arnsbourg. The style of the cuisine and the decor and atmosphere is exactly what I am looking for. Unfortunately, I soon discovered the remote location of the restaurant, which in many ways made me even more excited in dining there. My excitement though, does not remove the practical aspects of actually getting to Hotel K and eating at L'Arnsbourg. This will be my first time in Europe (neither my fiancee nor I speak French well) and my fiancee and I will be traveling primarily by train. I am interested to know any advice on how to get to L'Arnsbourg from Paris. I assume we could take a train from Paris to the closest train station, but I was wondering how easy or difficult it is to arrange car service to the restaurant from the station.

Any advice or comments on L'Arnsbourg would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
