Heading back to Paris next month. On past visits we have very much enjoyed Taillevent, Violon, Septime, Spring, Fables, RSH, Astier, Cafe Constant, CLJ, Les Papilles and Chez Georges.
The highlight of this trip will be lunch at Guy Savoy. Will revisit RSH, Astier, and Les Papilles . Would be grateful for your help filling in the rest. We are looking for a balance of traditional, classic cooking and creative modern flair.
(Day of Arrival)Tues L: Cigale Recamier. Though it has often been recommended to us, we have never made it. Would you recommend it for the soufflés?
Tues D: Les Papilles (and an early night)
Wed L: RSH
Wed D: L'Assiette? Like the idea of a great cassoulet but am concerned about mixed reviews. Also would enjoy a warm, old fashioned feel--as at Chez Georges.
Th L: Guy Savoy
Th D: Breizh Cafe
F L: Astier
F D: Volnay? Thoumieux? Violon? Cornichon? Philou? Le Galopin? I understand that they are very different from one and other. I'd be grateful to know which, if any, is among the best in its class. I could use a recommendation for Friday night (our last night in Paris) and for Wednesday night to balance out my other choices.
