In november, I will be in Paris for just one evening. Exceptionnally, I will treat myself to the best possible restaurant, classic grande cuisine française, and (gulp !) price is no object. I have reduced the list to the following places:
- Pierre Gagnaire
- La Table de Robuchon
- Le Grand Véfour (just as a reference, because they are closed on friday nights, and of course, that's when I will be in Paris)
Which one would you pick? Would you suggest another one (please do so if you have better ideas)?
I will be dining alone, and although I have no problems with that, and I speak french, I don't want to go to a place where they will look down on me because I occupy (for dinner !!!!) a whole table for half the money they could get if I was a couple, if you get what I mean. I cannot abide rude service, especially at these prices...
Also, has anyone ever been to "L'ambassade d'Auvergne"? I am planning lunch there in October, when I will also be in Paris, but just for 1/2 day. I am looking for truly authentic and outstanding Auvergne, south western french food. This restaurant seems to get good reviews... What is your opinion?
THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!
