When I found out I was going to Paris this summer, I was overwhelmed with how to choose our restaurants (before I found you amazing people!) and I asked one of my favorite US chefs what his favorites were in Paris since i like his style of food, in the Thomas Keller style of cooking
A few months later, he finally gets back to me, and I am not sure I think his suggestions are really that inspiring. HIs suggestion for the splurge was Le Meurice, but I feel better about Le Cinq and L'Astrance for our two choices. Especially since the lunch menu at Le Meurice did not look as nice as the dinner menu. Dinner seemed lovely ,but we really cannot afford dinner menus.
Anyone care to weigh in on these (3 or 4?) more casual choices?
