    A former favorite, the prix-fixe lunch was a good deal. Lunch menu is now 80 euros, but they are only open two days per week at midday and the options are few. Dress tends to be on the formal side, and they do not "encourage" tourists, in my experience. Still, for a special occasion, it belongs on a short list.

        Give us some examples of what is your sort of place because i was hesitant to reply to your query because for some wealthy nostalgia buffs places like Lasserre are wonderful trips back to the 1960's.

          "and they do not "encourage" tourists"
          My experience is counter to this. Had a reservation there about 3 years ago. Air France lost our luggage, about 5 days into the trip still had no decent clothes. I called to cancel and told them the reason. They said absolutely no problem, come on anyway. Went on, felt a bit out of place in a sweatshirt and nylon pants. They gave me a jacket to wear and treated us like kings.

            Good to hear - my experience of three stars is much the same. They have standards but the better it is, the less snotty it is, and they will work with you.

            That said if your lifestyle POV is never to conform, then don't. But don't expect a three star to be accommodating. Horses for courses and all that.......
