Would you pick either Le Grand Vefour or Jules Verne for a romantic lunch? My wife has wanted to go to Le Grand Vefour for a while but admittedly doesn't know much of the Paris dining scene save for what I have told her. Don't get me wrong though, she does enjoy dining and is very knowledgeable about food.
I know she has no idea about the existence of Jules Verne and it might be a romantic and memorable way of ending of 10 day vacation. However, is the food just a total turn off. I know it is quite expensive for what you get but I thought they had 1 michelin star and couldn't be too bad. On the flip side, Le Grand Vefour is one she does know about and this would impress her as well.
Admittedly, the food is not the man reason for going to either of these restaurants. We will be taking care of that during our other days with Le Cinq, Spring, CLJ, Frenchie, and Josephine Chez Dumonet already lined up. Having said that, I don't want to pay through the nose for a meal and an experience that isn't worth it.
