Chez Georges, Chez Michel, Saturne, or Garnier on a Monday night?
Hi Chowhounders - Heading to Paris at the end of the week armed with great recommendations for places to eat while we're there and places to shop for food items to take home. I'm struggling, however, with where to eat on Monday night. I've narrowed it down to four places - Chez Georges (the one on rue de Mail), Chez Michel, Saturne, and Garnier.
The rest of the time in Paris, we have reservations for Le Violon d'Ingres, Le Regalade St. Honore, Chez Ami Jean, Les Papilles, Aux Lyonnais, Spring, and Petrelle. Which of the four above would you add to the list?
I orginally planned on eating at Le Gaigne on Monday night, but when I called, I was told it was closed. Then I booked at Chez Michel, but recent Chowhound reviews have suggested that the restaurant is slipping in food quality and service. Recent reviews of Chez Georges have been quite positive (specifically JT's reviews), although I wonder if should mix things up a bit with more modern cuisine or a seafood dinner. Your thoughts would be most welcomed! Of course, I will write a detailed report when I return (certainly fatter and happier).
Thanks so much!
You have about nixed all your Monday choices. I believe Le Cinq ( ihttp://www.fourseasons.com/paris/dining/le_c...) is open on Monday. Many rate it highly as a great choice and bargain, such as it is.
Anyway, hopefully my post will boost your request up to where someone more knowledigible might help you out.
