Dining in Paris
Eating well is one of the greatest pleasures of visiting Paris. Even if
you're staying in an apartment, you'll want to sample some of Paris' many
dining options. It's hard to get a bad meal in this city, and you don't have to
dine at the big-name restaurants to eat well. In fact, some of our best
discoveries have been tiny, little-known restaurants.
This fall, Gail, I, and our family group dined around in Paris, and so did
former editor Susannah Clark and her husband, on a separate trip. Susannah
(SC) sampled a couple of Paris' more pricey bastions of French cuisine,
while we (MT), with a large group in tow, mostly took the "low road."
Here are our reports.
L'Arpege (SC): This Michelin three-star restaurant
across the street from the Musee d'Rodin offers outstanding, inventive,
and expensive cuisine in a chic, unassuming little dining room. Chef Alain
Passard's degustation menu was one of the best dinners I have ever
had—and, at 1,500FF (about $215), one of the most expensive. The service was
outstanding; forgo five dinners elsewhere for one here. 84 rue de Varenne; Tel:
01-45-51-47-33; fax: 01-44-18-98-39; www.alainpassard.com
