I love the juxtaposition of L'Ami Jean against traditional "stuffy" French dining. It's all about serving world-class food in an everyday setting. Pigeon meat, blood sausage and chicken tureen with minced vegetables in olive oil and vinegar syrup.
Scoring a table at Joel Robuchon is reason to celebrate—hey, it’s not every day you get to eat food from the “Chef of the Century.” If you can swing it, opt for the Menu Degustation. The price tag is nothing to sneeze at, but this is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
I've got to admit when it comes to hotels I'm a bit of a snob. I love a luxury hotel and the Five Seasons Hotel George V in Paris far exceeds my expectations. The rooms are beautiful and decorated in Parisian style.
Add the pressed duck from Restaurant Michel Rostang to your bucket list. It's a seriously indulgent experience, and where else can you have a 5th-generation Parisian chef prepare this house specialty for you?
France is famous for its mustard, and for mustard lovers like me, it’s all about Maille. The basically have the stuff on draught. From classic brown mustards to new mustard flavors, including dry white mustard, every time I'm here I want to swim in the stuff.
