Restaurant Chez L'Ami Louis - Paris
This "tres cher" restaurant in the 3rd was right across the street from our apartment. 60 Euro for asparagus appetizer! Didn't even look at the Foie Gras. Every night was a lineup of limo's and taxi's dropping off and picking up the well-to-do.
We ate just down the street at an outstanding restaurant called Pramil (9 rue du Vertbois. See; www.paris-update.com/restaurants/pramil.htm for review). Save your euro's and walk down the street!
