I just watched a delicious episode of Parts Unknown (RIP Tony) about Lyon. Notable chefs were attributing their cooking heritage to La Mère Brazier. So, I was wondering if there are any particular restaurants in Paris you recommend that follow her school of cooking?
Although my dream trip to Paris isn't until May 2019, I am counting the days avidly following this board. M. Parnassien, I have come a long way since my initial post saying I was considering Les Deux Magots for my first-ever Parisian dinner. While I have sophisticated tastes in art, I have rather simple tastes when it comes to food (no seafood), but I don't want to waste one moment or euro eating "metro/industrial."
We plan to stay in the 6th and right now I am considering Au Moulin A Vent Chez Henri for that first jet-lag dinner. Of course, this is subject to change.
For casual and small plates, which is my preferred way to dine, L'Avant Comptoir de la Terre and Freddy's look delicious.
Lunch at Le Foyer de la Madeleine seems like a charming experience. Les Ombres for that more formal tourist dinner with a view. Soufflés at Le Récamier. Champagne tasting — somewhere.
I look forward to reading everyone's trip reports and welcome any suggestions. Merci!
