L'Essential, Paris

Post by Tim » July 26th, 2007, 7:26 pm

So Miles was supposed to put up a blurb about this, so feel free to edit it Miles.

While I'm gushing tonight I wanted to rave about this amazing little restaurant in Paris. It's just a few blocks from the Arc de Triomphe, and it's run completely by two guys. One is front of house and one is the chef. They are apparently ex-white collar professionals, and I'm glad they took up their hobby as a profession.

For the price, it is amazing food anywhere, let alone a tourist district in Paris. The food is just sublime, as is the service. They both speak perfect English and unlike other Parisians, are very friendly. They claimed to remember Miles from our Beer Tour in 05 when he went there in June 07.

So if you're in Paris, do yourself a favour and look them up.

I highly recommend the Maccas down the road from the Louvre (five minute walk).
