Hi,

My girlfriend and I will be touring Europe in April with our final stop in Paris for three nights. So far I've gotten a pretty good idea of where we would like to go from reading this forum but wanted to get some feedback for the last day.

Mon - Dinner at Frenchies
Tues - Dinner at Le Spring
Wed - Lunch at Le Cinq, dinner at Le Regalade

Would Wed be a sensory overload? This will be our last full day in Paris so I felt we should "go big". Should we just stick to just one?

Is the lineup too similar in styles? I appreciate any criticisms or suggestions.

Thanks,

Eric

    "Would Wed be a sensory overload?"

    The last day is overload of some kind.

    "This will be our last full day in Paris so I felt we should "go big". Should we just stick to just one?"

    RĂ©galade will be the weakest meal of your entire stay. With RĂ©galade as your last meal, you are not going out big. You are going out mezzopiano.

    "Is the lineup too similar in styles?"

    No.

      Le Cinq is not to be missed. You will want something light for dinner.

        Or skip dinner and go back to Spring for the wine tasting session that includes 6 "tapas".

            Thanks Parigi sounds like a great idea. And finally got through to Frenchie and am all set for Mon!

              I am also going to Paris this spring and am trying to get through to anyone live at Frenchie's for a reservation. How did you do it, if you don't mind me asking?

                Hi Stella,

                I think it's been mentioned here before but I was able to get threw by calling around 7-7:30pm. Right before dinner service starts. I would just keep trying every 10-15min. It took a few days but I finally got through. Just be persistent.

                Be prepared to ask in French if you can speak in english as a courtesy.

                Eric

      After lunch at Le Cinq, skip being cramp inside Le Regalade (that part of the 14th is not particularly atmospheric) and use the last evening to stroll around Paris with your girlfriend. Nothing can beat that.

        Parigi, is it necessary to have a reservation for the wine tasting with tapas? Also, do you happen to know if it's available for both lunch and dinner times?

          "Parigi, is it necessary to have a reservation for the wine tasting with tapas?"

          yes

          "Also, do you happen to know if it's available for both lunch and dinner times?"

          The wine-tasting session is held in the late afternoon, about twice a week, but am not sure which days. I think I went on a Thursday. The best is to call Spring Boutique and ask Josh.
