|Le Grand Vefour, 1st Arr Paris|
My friend Troy is on his way to Paris for Bastille Day, so I recommended this very old, and elegant restaurant next to the Palais Royal, Le Grand Vefour.
My late mentor and friend, Tice Alexander often went there when he was in Paris. Tice always preferred to stay at the Hotel Ritz, "on the Vendome side" as he would always request.
This languostine (lobster) course is probably somewhere in the 112 to 119 euro range or higher- be prepared for the check to be in four figures! :) A BLACK Am Ex might be nice to bring along. Here is the menu click here ***** ( a simple lunch is offered for only 98 euro)
How cool are these? On him ! I saw these at the trunk show here that SW had at the Naples branch of Maus and Hoffman. I think I prefer the ones below, called "Loyal" (The screw U ones are called "College")
* * * * *Here's a funny story for you before I turn back the Porthault. I was boarding a commercial flight many years ago, forget where I was off to , probably L.A. - and I looked over and there was ROBIN LEACH ! Do you remember him? He hosted an outlandish television program called ""Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous"-
Well, I guess I didn't know that he hated gawking fans or the merely curious- since he stared holes through me with the most WICKED, hateful and baleful look I have ever seen on a mans face! It was brutal. He must have gotten bumped off of a private plane, and had to resort to flying COMMERCIAL. Ghastly, simply ghastly!
