Anyone want to have lunch at Ledoyen next week?

Have the reservation, most mates cannot make it mid-week(they are closed on the weekends), SOOOOOOOOOOOOOMEBODY's a maybe(you know who you are) and I have eaten out enough solo meals. More importantly than the last point is that I am not sure I can eat all that I want to order. A bit of sharing would clinch it. I might not need it but I have a shrunken stomach far more often than I would think these days. And worst case, it will not be an issue to increase the number of diners for the reservation. Email is my username with the gmail service.

      Wish I could join you, but local rĂ´turiers like me have to, gulp, work.

        Love to join you as well, but in Florida now, sorry

          Indeed the lack of a weekend possibility has created this issue. Though I am not sure there are not a great many Parisians taking a long time out for lunch to be generous. I appreciate your support, though, Parigi.
          Deluca, you are in the black hole of culinary delights known as Florida? That alone should make you hop an overnight r/t on Air France just to do lunch and tide you over.
          I still have a faint hope.

            Last night at Bern's Steakhouse in Tampa, with a large group of people had 6 different Julienas Beaujolais from the 70's, and each was under $ 30. What a winelist, wow

            1. re: Delucacheesemonger

              I figured you would be at the spot with the huge list. But that list ain't worth being in Tampa.
              Seems you enjoyed yourself, though, which is good.
              You still have time, I am still flying solo and the weather is actually nice. No brainer, yeah?

              1. re: Delucacheesemonger

                Can Julienas handle that, or is it just stunt aging?

                  These were special cuvees of Georges DuBoeuf, and while the ones from 2008 were certainly fresher, brighter, and showed far more fruit, the older ones were wonderful. We compared them to a 1964 Pommard Rugiens of impeccable provenance and nothing was less than worthy drinking. This list has over 20,000 different bottles at anytime available, and over the years one of my go to's is a bottle of Dr. Parce Mas Blanc Banyuls 1980 for $ 36/bottle. Not stunt aging, more that they bought a lot of a lot of stuff, and it has not been ordered yet by customers. They also have over five pages of Madeiras by the ounce, dating back to the 18th Century.

                    Thanks. Hmmmmm, interesting. I love Pommard, and I'm totally into the beaujolais crus.
