Arpège de Alain Passard.

One of the hight light of my trip to Paris was my lunch at Arpège. It wasn't planned and I was lucky to get a table for 2 for lunch on a Friday. What a luxury to be able to enjoy a 3 michelin star menu from one of the most prestigious chefs in the world. As a vegetarian I was so lucky as Alain Passard has a huge part of the menu dedicated to vegetables, he also owns his own potager outside Paris. It is not a vegetarian restaurant and if you are you need to comment it while booking.
An exclusive meal at this 30 seater chic and sophisticated interior,with an unbeatable service was  one of my most fabulous meals ever... Each dish had its own history, glory and magical flavors.
