Fine Dining in Paris

jocatlo Aug 13, 2007 01:39 PM

My boyfriend and I will be travelling to Paris in the upcoming weeks. While there, I would like to take him out to a special restaurant to celebrate his birthday. I've made reservations at Taillevent but, after careful consideration, have come to the decision that I just cannot afford it.
I'm considering l'Angle du Faubourg, La Truffiere, Les Bouquinistes or Le Jardin des Cygnes, all relatively the same in terms of price points (70-100 Euro tasting menus). In general, I have read positive reviews of L'Angle du Faubourg; the others all have mixed reviews.

I would be so grateful for any suggestions. It has been a dream of mine for so long to travel to Paris and I want it to be incredibly special.

    Why don't you consider changing your Taillevent reservation to lunch? The food is every bit as wonderful, as is the service, et al, and the 70 euro lunch is a true delight.

    I have been there for both lunch and dinner, and I really do not feel that lunch is a let-down from dinner, at all.

    L'Angle du Faubourg is excellent, and is owned by M. Vrinat, who owns Taillevent, but it is not a legendary restaurant.
