Champs Elysees Recs

My in laws are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in Paris. They are staying in Champs Elysees. I would like to get your recommendations around the area for really top notch french cuisine where the foie gras is out of this world. That's going to be my wife and I's wedding gift to them by paying for their dinner.

        In general, practical informations is easiliy found at . That's where I get them. Most of them.

          The seasonal tasting menu offered at lunch is now EUR155/225 (without/with wine pairings) instead of 135/205. It consists in two starters, on choice of meat or fish and one dessert.

            This is going so fast... We need to go now before he catches up the other top tables in town. Was this on a weekday? There seem to be different menus at different times of the day on different days.

            1. re: souphie

              This was last Friday (oct, 17th), at lunch. Two menus were offered: the EUR85 one (three choices of starters and desserts, four choices of mains) and this EUR155 menu ("Saveurs d'automne"). I was a bit surprised too that the prices went up by 10% in just a few weeks.
              Oh and the grouse pithiviers is now only "à la carte" and costs EUR240 for two. I am now officially considering getting into the crime business to taste this dish...

            haha I know! Im sorry :P

            Thank you for getting the address. I'll let them know of Le Cinq.

            I got a call from them this morning and they're complaining how expensive the food is yet doesn't complain about buying bags and wallets at LV haha

      2. Le Copenhague is on the Champs and quite near. Only (!) a one star but a fine fish house with excellent foie gras. Probably the best salmon in Paris. They also have a less formal restaurant on the street level called Florica Danica which I haven't tried. We did a three course salmon dinner; it was superb , but a bit much, ....or maybe it was all that Aquavit.

          The chef at Flora Danica is indeed excellent. They don't play in the same league as le Cinq, but they're good.
