Restaurant Week Part 2...Paris

Obviously one of the best cities in the world for food. In a city where one meal was better than the next I narrowed it down to just a few for the sake of not letting this post get to lone. I understand that they say "french women don't get fat" but send an America there and its all over....

Lasserre this may have been one of the most amazing meals I have ever had. From the time you enter you're treated like royalty brought up the elevator by the impeccably dressed staff to a stunning dining room I've ever seen.  I can't even make a suggestion for what to order to because everything was amazing.

Le 404 in Paris, is a trendy Moroccan restaurant and they only take reservations a week in advance, and they only have two seating times each night. The food is good, portions very big (especially for french standards), and its not too expensive. The Tagines and couscous are delicious!!! 

L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon has two paris locations, and is absolutely amazing. With two Michelin stars this place has impeccable food as well as service.   When you walk in it's set up like a sushi bar and when I went they didn't take reservations we had to head over when they open at 5:30 to put out name in for later that night, but I think that may have changed now.  Their famous mashed potatoes were complementary and oh so creamy and rich. Make sure you try the souffle, Le Jambon Iberico de Bellota (aged Iberico ham on toast), and the foie gras amuse bouche.
