Paris – Pierre Gagnaire

Instead of spending another day in museums I went for a very nice lunch instead. 85 euros for a “three” course lunch is a bargain compared to dinner prices for 3* establishments. Overall there 17 dishes I’d say (sadly I forgot to take picture of the 5th appetizer as it was covered and saved it until I’d eaten the first four) spread over almost 2 hours. The veal was amazing and overall I’d say this meal is probably top five all-time but I’m going to have to think about it.
