LAST SUPPER IN PARIS (LITERALLY)

Sadly returning to England after five fabulous Paris years. My husband's birthday just before we leave. Where to take him and our foody eleven year old son for a Saturday lunch and a final memory?
We've loved The Crillion, Le Cinq, Jules Verne, L'Arpege, Le Meurice. What have we missed?

    1. If the weather is good, the Bar Vendome at the Ritz would be my choice. Check it out.

      1. Being a romantic and slobbering old guy I guess if I were leaving after 5 years I'd go to the resto that I have the fondest memory of. That might be tougher on Saturday for lunch. So how about Friday night go to the fine dining old favorite and Saturday lunch to a gutsy bistro finale - Paul Bert or Repaire de Cartouche for example.

          Who mentioned saturday? You always seem to know more than is written.

            No, I believed my teachers who insisted I read all the instructions before opening a test.
            cf "Where to take him and our foody eleven year old son for a Saturday lunch and a final memory?"

                This thread spooks me too, starting with the title. I keep imagining the poster committing harakiri after dessert.

        2. Thank you all. Eight posts but only three with a restaurant suggestion. Congratulations to John for reading the exam question carefully. And to Paragi and Souphie, England is a painful move though perhaps not as final as harikiri (we will survive beyond dessert). A decision based on education rather than our palate. I'm liking a 'gutsy bistro finale'

          1. I would consider "La Grande Cascade"; a place designed to create pleasant memories.
