L'ami Louis-worth the trouble?

Will be in Paris in November for 1 night.(we've been a few times before and done all
the usual suspect bistros) Have heard and read about L'ami Louis forever. Does anybody
still think its worth the trouble to get a reservation, not to mention the $$?
It used to sound like a place/experience you had to do once in your life-wondering
if its still in that category.
Thanks all.

Seeking impulsive, flippant Paris advice...please help!

We go to Chez Georges (the one on Rue de Mail) everytime we do Paris.
Its a really great authentic bistro. You will LOVE it.

Lobster Help

Wondering if there are any seafood pros who could solve a problem.
Birthday dinner tomorrow-Birthday boy wants lobster,
I have a lobster pot/steamer that would fit the 5- 1 1/2lb lobsters.
Can I steam them all at once? For longer that I would usually steam 2?
And if so-how long? Appriciate the help.

They had small plates-to order as many (or few) as you like.

Jim Lahey on Martha's show yesterday....

Made it last night-much easier with
the updated measures- did the 2nd rise
on a SILPAT sheet and covered bread with
plastic wrap-much better that a tea towel!

Where are the best croissants outside of France

Williams Sonoma mail order. You leave them out overnight
and bake in the morning. Felt like we were in Paris !
Very, very good.

Anyone have or used a Viking oven?

I've had my viking "professional" for 2 years.
It's great. No problems at all (other than getting
the burners low enough to simmer)
Have to use a flame-tamer.
