Reviews - What do customers think about Gourmet Bistros and Restaurants of Paris?
Beautiful Book... Jul 22, 2006
If you have dined at any of the restaurants listed in this book, you'll want it (Le Grand Véfour, Jules Verne, Taillevant...) The photography is stunning, and it is an historical view of the greatest restaurants in the world. There is something magical about looking at the pages and saying "Wow! I sat right there... and enjoyed one of the most memorable meals of my life!"
If you have never dined at any of these restaurants, you may wish to buy it- just so you can plan a trip there......
