So many wonderful restaurants, so little time!
My husband and I are traveling to Paris next month April 11-18 and I wanted to double check my food plans with the board and make sure I'm not missing anything or making any mistakes. So here's our plan (not all reservations are confirmed)
Thursday - late lunch at Les Papilles (no dinner plans in case we get too sleepy to enjoy)
Friday - Day trip to Chartres, dinner at Spring
Saturday - Lunch - la Robe et le Palais
Dinner - Agape Substance
Sunday - Lunch - no idea yet
Dinner - Dans les Landes
Monday - Lunch - Saturne
Dinner - Le Bel Canto (no choice here, it's a business dinner)
Tuesday - Lunch - L'Atlelier Saint Germain
Dinner - planned banquet for business, :(
Wedensday - Lunch - no idea yet
Dinner - Frenchie (I hope)
I'd love any thoughts, comments, ideas. I do have a couple of openings and am wide open to ideas.
Also if anyone knows of a 1 or 2 day cooking class I could take while I'm there that is actually of any value, I would be interested in information. Unfortunately my French is very rusty, so it would need to be English friendly. Any other food related sites/activities you could suggest would be appreciated.
Over the years, I have taken a number of day classes (avocational) at Le Cordon Bleu. they are taught in French, but always have an excellent translator on hand. Caveat: I do have a degree from LCB also, so maybe I'm a bit biased, but I think folks get a lot out of them. I know I have.
La Robe et Le Palais! I don't see that one mentioned much on the sites I visit. My husband and I had such a memorable dinner there, although it was quite some time ago. But I remember a fantastic calamari dish like it was yesterday - and friendly (and cute, but that's neither here nor there) service. Just a great, little neighborhood joint.
So I'll be curious if French business banquets are as bad as they are in the U.S. Other than that, sounds like a great week. Enjoy!
