will those two restaurants have similar flavors and techinques or will they be very different
try to move some days around on my trip and was thinking about pairing those for a monday and a tuesday and didnt want to have the same food / experience two nights in a row
was hoping for a bit of help on that - thanks
JCD is very traditional with a never changing menu of absolute classics and huge portions, in a setting that is very "bistrot" as we imagine it, very old brasserie in fact. Le Florimond is more like a bourgeois house, with more up to date cooking, more changing, much less food. Some might find it more refined. For me it's more boring.
Very different. Dumonet very traditional, at a high level of professionalism. Florimond (which has never appealed to me) always makes me think "I could have done this at home."
