I guess I got lucky. I filled out the contact from on Abri's website and they emailed me immediately. Confirmed a reservation for November 16th with credit card deposit. Septime replied that their reservations open 3 weeks ahead at 10 am local, so I'll be giving them a call at 4 am EDT on the 25th to get a reservation on 11/15. Online would work too. Waiting to hear back from Rigmarole.
How was Abri?

One of the best meals of my life. We usually avoid blind prix fixe, but here the flavors will make you like all the ingredients you thought you didn’t. I can’t imagine spending 4-5x for a 2* or 3* meal, the cooking there is as good as it gets.

Wow! I am going to Paris next week and it is probably too late to fit in. But next time it will be a priority!

Stay tuned for many updates!

First stop Les Enfants du Marché:



Also found a great new coffee spot in the Marais Grand Café Tortoni. It is a coffee and cosmetics store. Weird combo but the coffee is great.

Dinner on Saturday at Restaurant A.T was as always fantastic.

Lunch Sunday at Clamato was good followed by the usual all day hang at Cave Septime.

And THEN dinner at Cheval d' Or was just stunningly great! Blew me away!!!! One of the best meals I have had in a long time.

Back from a week in Paris. I will try to post thoughts on all meals.

Les Enfants Du Marché - two lunches here. Fantastic as always. I would be a regular here if I lived in Paris.





La Cagouille - Admittedly I primarily went here to drink wine. The wine list was not as large as I had hoped but there is definitely lots of great choices. And the food was much better than I expected. I would definitely return.

Lunch at Maison Sota. At €55 the lunch tasting menu is an absolute steal. We loved Chef Sota's food at Clown Bar and went to his NYC residency a few times. Hence, we were very excited for this lunch! And it did not disappoint. The food was excellent. And I feel like two months in he is just getting started and the food will continue to improve. Wine service was great with many of the cleaner type Natural wines I dig.

We scheduled two meals at Restaurant A.T because we had a dinner booked on our first night and then friends wanted to go later in the trip. Chef Atsushi is a dear friend so take this with a grain of salt. I love his food and both dinners were wonderful. The photos are from the 2nd dinner where he changed up about half of the menu with many first time dishes.
