Switched our Europe itin around to have 3 nights at end of a cruise in Paris this May - this is a surprise for my husband's 50th, so those who know me - shhhhh!!!!
Using points - finally they are worth something - and booked the new Park Hyatt Place Vendome. Has anyone heard anything about this? The Concierge? Abilities / where they came from? Any feedback on their restaurant?
Would definitely like to visit l'Astrance & have had La Perouse highly recommended. We will do one blow-out meal (by our standards - not on an expense account!) & rest lower key. Is Bofinger worth it? We have a Guy Buffet painting of Bofingers hanging in our den & would be fun to visit if it is. Also thinking about Chez Georges, Le Pre Catalan, Thomieux, Maison Blanche, Cap Vernet, Le Bambouche, Chez Catherine & Le Soleil. Sorry, I know that's a lot, but any definite musts or any definite must-nots?
Finally, when should I start making resvs? I know Astrance opens books 1 month prior, so hopefully our Concierge will be waiting & ready to pounce, but what about the others? How soon is too soon?
