Splurge worthy lunch in Paris

chocokitty | May 27, 201605:12 PM

The last time I've been to Paris was in 2010 and my splurge lunch was Ledoyen when chef Christian le Squer was at the helm. It was phenomenal. It surely felt luxurious and the food was innovative and absolutely delicious. If memory serves me correctly, when I saw the l'addition of €110 per person back then was a bit stinging but it felt justified at the same time. (The other restaurants I've eaten during that trip: Chateaubriand (interesting food but sometimes the flavors get lost on me), Chez L’Ami Jean (loved it), Fogón (didn't experience the tapas until I went to Barcelona two years later), L’As du Falafel (loved it despite it's a humble falafel sandwich), Le Bis du Severo (good steak), and probably about a dozen patisseries and boulangeries.)

I'm going back to Paris for two nights on September 4th and September 5th and if it matters, I will be staying at Hôtel du Louvre. I know it's a tricky time to dine well because these dates are Sunday and Monday. That all said, which Michelin starred restaurants do you think is innovative and delicious? I'm hoping not to spend more than €110 but I'm open to suggestions if it is really a transcendent experience. Please advise and many thanks in advance for your help.
