La Fourchette's deals; help me out here.

John Talbott Aug 25, 2013 06:43 AM

For years I've been using La Fourchette for news and reviews and maybe once for a rez. But never for promotions/deals/coupons/etc.
But recently I've seen mention of such, I think re: Au Bon Coin.
In any case, illuminate me, are they for:
good places
bad places
struggling places
new places
old places?
All of the above?
Thanks

    Well, here is an answer by example: La Fourchette currently offers 40% off the carte at La Grande Cascade. But right now, this is offered only for reservations one month from now, and for a one-month period. I have seen similar offers on LF for this same restaurant, and others of similar ilk, for the last year or so. -- Jake

      And PS, LF currently has a 55 Euro per person mid-week lunch deal at Le Cinq. (That is, if you can get the online calendar to work. Unfortunately, LF can be unstable and frustrating to use when booking, and refuse to bring up the date that you select.) -- Jake

      le Reminet usually has a good deal. IMO it is not great but it ain't bad.

        I disagree, I like Le Reminet in its new skin, albeit more expensive than 10-20 years ago, but then I've not used promotions yet.

          We are usually there in low season -April. I like it and we go every couple of years. So many restaurants - so little time.

        There's a very good early-week special on LaFourchette for Métropolitain in the 4th. Excellent and fun restaurant as well. Designed to simulate a Metro station.

        Chef is young and creative. Have had some great meals here.

          I'm not so hot about the one in the 4th; I much prefer that in the 16th.

              Métropolitain (4th) and Metropolitan (16) are unrelated.
