Am I on the right track
Does anyone have any recent experiences at the following restaurants (good or bad):
Hier et Aujourd'hui
Le Beurre Noisette
I'm heading to Paris in two weeks solo and wanted to see if these would good selections. I didn't see many recent posts on three of them. Christophe seems to get good reviews?
Also, do these places need advanced reservations or can I walk in as a single and get a table? I'm trying to have my hotel make some reservations because my French is quite lacking.
We had friends who were very disappointed with Christophe. They loved Itinéraires as did we. Here is an excerpt from the trip report that I posted:
Itinéraires (Metro - Maubert Mutualité) I had two new restaurants on my list and was vacillating between them. I don’t know why I chose to have lunch on Thursday at Itinéraires but we were glad I did. It helped to hear that JulieVikmanis and her husband enjoyed it when we met them at the GTG. The staff was very warm and welcoming especially as I walked in gave our name and had a coughing fit. The waitress seated us and rushed me a glass of water. They had a printed menu and a blackboard with essential specials of the day. You could mix and match. We started with an asparagus salad with white and green asparagus which was good but didn’t hold a candle against a carpaccio of scallops with foie gras dotted with pomegranates on a bed of shredded celery root. We went with wines by the glass and they have some amazing wines. One was a Gewürztraminer which was golden in color and wonderful with the scallops and asparagus. The plats were a rabbit saddle with a mustard sauce, cabbage and bacon and a magret de canard with beets and raspberries. The combination of beets and raspberries was something we were a little leery of but it worked so well with duck that we will try it at home. The duck and the scallops were voted the best dishes of the week. Desserts were a strawberry soup which wasn’t really soupy and pears poached in different mediums-chocolate, wine and something else. I highly recommend this restaurant. We were one of the few Americans there and were treated very well. The pre fixe menu was 36€ per person.
