I'm looking for the best food of my life in Paris

In terms of faintingly good food and a lovely experience, especially for two, at an outrageously good price, Guy Savoy has a 100 Euro lunch that must be booked ahead online that took us more than three hours to complete and knocked our socks off. We loved that lunch gave us the same incredible experience for less money while leaving us time for um, more amorous pursuits later in the evening..dancing outside along the Seine...watching sunsets...seeing the Eiffel Tower light up...I've eaten at many, many good restaurants in my life, this was food as art.

Best restaurants in Aix?

May I second the request? I'll be visiting soon, as well.

Best Udon in Austin?

So I almost wrote in that I had found a good one at Sushi Niichi, which served a very nice bowl about a month ago, but I went back and the second time, not up to par. But it would be worth trying again. The all-veggie tempura (asked special) that went with was good both times, I thought - light, not greasy - and the broth pretty flavorful the first time around.

Best Udon in Austin?

Now that it's getting colder, I'm looking for that glimmering, glistening gorgeous bowl of chewy, slick udon noodles with a savory and well-balanced broth, fresh and hot and scrumptious, hot, crispy tempura alongside or on top - all the wonderful other bits that make it perfect. I've tried Maru - great noodles but less-than-stellar broth - and I seem to remember having a good bowl at Kyoto once -

Has anyone who's had really, really good udon found the perfect bowl here?
