Michelin Mistakes?

foodieinmyhead | Apr 15, 201301:42 PM

Hello to people who know way more about food than I do! My husband and I are spending a few days in Paris for the first time this July, and we've got 5 precious meals to eat there - 2 dinners & 3 lunches.

We are planning on one "money is no object" dining experience and four solid choices that won't force us to sell our house to fund this trip.

My question is this: Am I making a mistake in thinking that the "money is no object" dinner should be one of the two or three-star Michelin restaurants? With so many choices, having a limited list pleases my neurotic, haphazard soul, and I'm tempted to simply choose from that list alone and trust that the experience will match the price. OR am I a putz who is falling for name alone and missing out on more superb French dining with this approach?

Any thoughts on the Michelin restaurants/big name chefs (and heck, any of your MUST go-to places) would be so welcomed. Many thanks in advance!
