my girlfriend really want to go fine dining one of the days, she loved paul bocuse because its fancy/classic and the food is more about good expensive ingredients and no foams, jellys and spheres, she didnt enjoy nicolas le bec that much eather, i think she has a problem with eating to many courses she is not so expirienced with fine dining but she knows alot about food, here mom is from lyon.. and moi is a cook, I spoke to my friend who is a very famous foodphotographer, and he told me to go to pierre gagnaire, so i wont go there, because he likes really avantgarde food and gets bored if everything is just very tasty and classic, and my boss said that l'arpege sucked, so im looking for a three course dinner cheese and dessert with wine paring and all the ingridients that is my girl loves, (truffle, foiegras, lobster etc.) in a splendid diningroom with kind and welcoming atmosphere, rather then snobby your not french attitude im thinking max 300euros per person, including a noisette and a digestif after dinner and a glas of champagne when we arrive;) so do your magic Souphie an send us away:) peas.
if you want to explore the full rich cusine of lyon dont miss paul bocuse 3star restaurant, its old school but very nice and a classic, just do the three course dinner or you will explode by the time they roll in the desserts. his bistros are quite good aswell,
what i really would love, is to start a meal with a perfect pate en croute made from a couple of birds and with a big pieace of foiegras in the center, then maybe some rosted veal sweetbreads with petit pois ala france and truffle jus, and some perfectly cooked lamb for my Julie, then some cheese and for dessert a savarin with strawberries or a perfect classic mille fuille. some really good wine and a bill thats max 300euros for the whole thing, is this possible in paris?
thanks alot for the tips souphie.. i dont know why robert et louise, it just felt like a place to relax after all the more trendy places on my list, simple but good but im up for anything really, im trying to stay a way from the meccas of gagnaire, savoy etc for budget reasons, but i really do enjoy the grand cuisine and classic finedining. maybe for lunch? its my first time in paris so im a empty page, i read your posts and i really like your style, if you were me how would your perfect 5day list look?
it's to bad robuchon get so bad reviews because hes my hero.. but so did paul bocuse and la pyramide but i thought they were exellent,
me and my fiance are traveling from sweden to paris on the 14th of june, we are staying one week. we love classic food like Paul bocuse classic, but enjoy more modern food aswell. we want a blend of everything and i got alot of tips from my friends (im a chef) i have a list now and i would be very happy to get some tips and recomendations if i got it all wrong... the only place we really need to go to i La Gazzeta because my boss used to work there, i really just want some nice food good wine and good service is that so hard...haha
