1 night in Paris-first time

Hello all,

Just signed up, this is my first post, I love this site so far.

I will be in Paris for one afternoon/evening and early morning (a short time I know).

I would love a few recommendations of "must eats" that are not outrageously expensive close to where I will be staying.
I will be at:

Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris

31, avenue George V
75008 Paris

Thanks so much!

  1. An appropriate "pairing" with a stay at the George V would probably be one of these, in the same quartier:

    Pierre Gagnaire
    Alain Ducasse PA

    Le Cinq, in the hotel, is at a similar level.

    Paris being what it is, there are probably a couple of hundred "must eats", too many for 1 night! :)

      1. Le Bistro de L'Oliver is nearby, and quite reasonable. Other reasonably priced places include L'Ecluse (wine bar) and Flora Danica; none are "destination" restaurants however. Also, the bar at the Geo V has a decent menu. If you have jet-lag these might work.

        1. You could always ask Adrian your concierge, he posts on this site:

            Very interesting point. This may in fact be the kind of service that prompted you to choose this hotel.

          2. I guess i should have stated that I am looking for something "rustic" rather than a "destination" place if you know what I mean.

              Not really but I still vote Chez L'Ami jean, for both rustic AND destination.
