Hi, I'm writing as a long-time French resident familiar with the Chowhound board and more or less up-to-date on things. That said, I'm looking for a restaurant (or many, should the beast exist) which is, as the title suggests, a chic, swanky joint (in other words not a homey bistro out in the arrondissements, however good it is) that is great food-wise but won't completely bust the bank. You know, sort of a half-michelin-star deal on the way up, ideally, with a cool modern vibe and design. Do I ask too much? In any case, many thanks right off the bat for any and all responses.
