We are headed to Paris in October for 7 nights. We want to eat at the most delicious places....can anyone give me their thoughts on these places?
Atelier de Joel Robuchon
Georges (probably for lunch)
Alcazar (someone suggested this, but the review I read wasn't good!)
Le Petit Pontoise
I know that is a long list, but any input will help! :)
Thanks in advance!
I agree with Dodo - most of these restaurants have been discussed in depth on the board - some research will pay dividends and help you with more specific questions.
The one exception is probably Alcazar. It was set up by the succesful London restauranter/designer Terrance Conran, and is still run by a UK based company he has an interest in - so a UK owned restaurant in Paris owned by a architect/designer.
I have eaten there a few times and had a few drinks in the bar (although not within the last 18 months). Every visit was enjoyable and the food was fine - especially the fish and chips. However, it is the sort of restaurants that Parisians visit when the want to escape the the typical Parisian restaurant beloved so much by tourists. It is quite modern, sleek and funky with a good clubby bar on the mezzanine level for people watching.
I'm actually looking for info on Maison Blanche, too -
as well as Le Ciel de Paris (good venues for watching
Bastille Day fireworks!). Dodo and PhilD or others, can
you help? I tried searching as you suggested, but cannot
find numerous posts, only this one and one other. What am
I doing wrong? Would appreciate any comments on these
two eateries. Thanks very much!
You're unlikely to find that and les Bouquinistes won't provide it. The best place would be the Café de l'Homme in the musée de Chaillot, or the restaurants on top of the Montparnasse tower, the Concorde Lafayette hotel, the Sofitel rue de Sèvres. And some restaurants on top of Montmartre. A good place to see the firework is from the top of bd Pasteur but there's no restaurant there.
Also, the firework is around midnight so none of these places will still be serving dinner at that time.
