thoughts on da mimmo and/or market...

Am thankfully heading back to paris in the fall (3rd time!) and besdies CAJ (which i dream about year round) we want to try some new spots. I just read about Da Mimmo and while italian in france makes little sense to me, it got a rave. Anyone been? thoughts? worth 1/4 night dinner?

Also was looking into Market JGV's restaurant. I havent seen it get much play on the boards but i am a lover of his new york restaurants. thoughts?

thanks as usual!!

  1. I have no experience of Da Mimmo but I have some of Market. And I can sum it up as follows: don't.

    I usually don't blog about bad meals. This time was an exception. In case you're not fluent in French, the pictures speak for themselves.

    1. Last time I went to Da Mimmo was probably 3 years ago. I remember great antipasti and a very good truffle and ceps lasagna. I've heard their pizzas are very good but never had one.
      At the end of the day it is pretty expensive for what is a classic italian little place, I don't think you will regret going as it is very good, just slightly overpriced in my opinion.

        thanks, Rio. after reading your pierre gagnaire report, i was interested to see what you had to say. my parents just ate at his new place in vgas and had the meal of their lives. Also befriended the maitre d who said we must go in paris so it is at the top of our list. there are no prices on his website, if you dont mind my asking- what are the prices of dinner, and if you know, lunch?

          The dinner menu at Gagnaire was 260€, if you go a la carte and order appetizer+entree+dessert it could get more expensive. I think the lunch menu is around 100€ but I'm not positive about it, maybe someone else can confirm this.
