A (not too long) first dinner in Paris
I originally planned to book a table in Le Chateaubriand for our first night (March 13), but apparently they're renovating and not answering the phone.
Thought about one of the following as a replacement:
I read raving reviews about all 3 but was wondering which of them had an option for a mid-length dinner (yet a splendid one!) as it's our first day and we might be a bit tired.
No worries, a long 3+ hour dinner will occur the day after at Les Tablettes de JLN :)
From the 3, is there an affordable non-lengthy-degustation option?
If not, does one of the following have one: ZKG, KGB, Sola.
Thanks a lot!
"a mid-length dinner (yet a splendid one!) ........... an affordable non-lengthy-degustation option?"
Sorry, but I'm missing something here. How do you do mid-length when you're doing desgustation?
All six places you've named are wonderful; for a first night, as opposed to Nancy, I'd suggest Ze and order a couple of items, but that's me. Go to Sola, Septime, Toutain and Saturne for lunch on other days.
And there are newer places that hit the spot - BAT, Roca, Les Enfants Rouges and the Maison de l'Amerique Latine which have not reached the New York Times' ears yet.
I seem to remember the 5-course menu découverte (55 €) at Franck Enée on the rue Molière humming along rather speedily.
