Mother meets teenage son in Paris after he's been back backing for 3 weeks and wants to blow his socks off w a great meal, since he's a eater, and will be starved for a great meal. Was able to get a rez at these two fab places, but cant decide which.
Also..there's room in our itinerary for one more meal on the preceding day, either a lunch or dinner. Would so appreciate a great counterpoint to these two...maybe a steak place to counter L'Arpege, or a wonderful Brasserie to counter Le Grand Vefour? Location/cost not much of an issue, staying near the Eiffel Tower.
And while at it...if there's a light place for lunch near or enroute to Versailles/ Giverny welcome.
Welcome CH wisdom, as always.
