I failed to do my due dilligence before coming to Paris and have been looking over the board the past couple days for suggestions. Tonight will be Le Troyon but as tomorrow will be my last night in town I'd really like to have a truly phenomenal dinner. I'm presented with a dilemna in several aspects though, so I'm hoping I could get a recommendation that meets all my criteria. I hope this doesn't seem too much like "I'm a lazy git who instead of reading the past six months worth of posts is asking for a repeat of information that has bee posted numerous times." Truth be told though, I'd rather spend my last couple days in town doing more than reading the boards for hours on end.
So, here's what I'm looking for:
-Easy reservation or none necessary (we're looking at about 24-30 hours from the time of this post).
-Cost is a factor, I'm looking to spend no more than ~300 euros for two people, including wine. It should also be noted that my taste in wine runs relatively loose, I have a difficult time justifying 80+ euro bottles and have found myself very satisfied with 30-40 euro bottles everytime I've dined out here. So the bulk of that 300 euro limit should be dedicated to food rather than wine pairings.
-In a similar vein I'm a relative newbie to haute cuisine and would be quite happy with well executed stand-bys and classics. To give you an idea of what I'm talking about, this trip was my first experience (and the beginning of a lifelong love affair) with both duck and goose foie gras. I'm much more interested in establising a good base for such cuisine than I am in finding ingenuis reinterpretations/reinventions.
Hopefully that's not too tall an order and a few people will have suggestions for me that meet some or all of the above. Thanks in advance.
