Super fine dining in Paris

What are some of the best restaurants in Paris?  My girlfriends and I may be interested in splurging for a couple of the Michelin-star rated places.  It's not every day we're in Paris!

Rated one of the world's best restaurants,  Restaurant Pierre Gagnaire is definitely the top of French dining - Chef Pierre Gagnaire has even been awarded the French knighthood.  L'Astrance is another one of the world's best restaurants, so call ahead for a reservation. And bring your wallet. 

Another good one is  Restaurant L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon. 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.  Benoît is awesome, too. Alain Ducasse is indisputably one the best French chefs and to pass this restaurant up would be a crime.

If you like duck, add the pressed duck from 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?

For the freshest food, call ahead to get a table at  Spring. This always bustling restaurant serves various French dishes with the freshest ingredients.

If I were you, don't forget to go to the La Tour d'Argent, and make a reservation. But let me know the food you like.

I'm staying at the moment in Paris.

Make reservations at Guy Savoy. Very expensive, but the best meal I've ever had.

Le Grand Véfour - Not only is this Paris's oldest restaurant, it's thought to be it's most expensive. In fact, it's so expensive it can even afford to close all day on the weekends. While you may have to miss a car payment or two to dine here, you'll be among legends. Everyone from Napoleon to Victor Hugo have broken bread here and the most illustrious among them are honored in the form of brass plaques over their favorite seats.

L'Ami Louis - Ask any Parisian where to find the worst service, the most inedible food, and a bill higher than the Eiffel Tower, and they'll direct you immediately to L'Ami Louis. Bizarrely, in spite of its unfailing reputation as one of the worst restaurants in town, it's also one of the most popular, although it's primarily known for being a favorite of American celebrities.
