Groupon for Guy Savoy
I'm guessing this is not a Groupon kind of crowd, but this offer just popped up and I've got my finger on the trigger…
5 course autumnal menu with 5 wine pairings at Guy Savoy for 170 € per person (up to 4 people max). Plus a signed copy of his book for the table. It's good for lunch on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays, or for dinner on the same days but _only after 10:30pm_. I'd rather go for dinner, but does anyone have experience starting dinner that late at this restaurant?
Update on this offer:
Bookings via the website aren't limited to Tues, Wed, Thurs, I was given one for Friday lunch in December. Credit card details are required to confirm the resa which must also be re-confirmed the day before, failing which it will be cancelled. In the case of a no-show, or cancellation after 10h00 on the day, 200 euros per person will be charged to the credit card.
