I am looking for lunch on a sunday in October. I would like the best experience possible and am not that concerned about price, more about quality.

Any suggestions?

Wine in Paris

WSET, to answer your question. but no matter, not interested in people's "witty" remarks. I was just trying to be clear so that people can answer my question of which "Jock" , "Delucacheesemonger", and "Souphie" have done a great job. Thank you for your help.

Wine in Paris

I am pretty versed in wine and have a sommelier designation. To be more specific, I was wondering if there were any places that pride themselves in a low or fixed mark-up on wine so that one can enjoy a nice bottle without doubling or tripling the price. There are quite a few places in NY that do cost plus $20 for instance.

Are there any must go to places for wine in Paris? Any restaurants with low mark ups and great wine lists? Any can't miss wine stores?

Looking for a "real" Paris Bistro

I am willing to travel and am not interested in anything near the center that would be mobbed with tourists. I am a good french speaker.

New Yorker ISO Best Restaurants in Toronto

I live in NY and used to live in toronto...i would say that you will find nothing that is Daniel/ducasse/perse Bernadin-like in toronto...what you can find is some extremely creative (SUSUR) and localy influenced more classic cuisine (Splendido)

I have not been to Perigee, but have heard good things. Having been to most of the "Zagat top 20" I would say that Susur and Splendido hold their own with Susur being the most artistic/creative place i have been to (not WD-50 creative, more Jean-Georges creative) It is art on a plate.

that said, from what i have heard Susur is getting a little less consistant as his star rises....but, 3 of my 4 meals there have been off the charts. with 2 of them being better than anything i have had over the last 3.5 years in manhattan.

FYI...if you are a wine geek, you might want to add OPUS to that list....food holds its own, but the wine list is off the charts.

Susur

Stupendous...an off night is a great night anywhere else. Just make sure Susur is there and you are in for a treat. I think the off nights are heavily related to his being there
