I would have written this post earlier but I’m literally recovering from a food coma. So, as a very special treat, I was invited to the fanciest restaurant in Paris. Le Grand Vefour. This is the type of restaurant where you mind your P’s and Q’s and you might want to brush up on your table etiquette specifically which fork to use because you’re going to be faced with about 40 of them at this restaurant. Le Grand Vefour has everything you would expect for the most memorable meal. To start, the restaurant has been in operation in the Palais Royale since the 1700s. Yeah, the 1700s. As you know, I can be a tad bit judgmental but I swear there was not one thing I could complain about. The history, the decor, the service, the food, the ambience, the flowers! Everything was perfect.
The restaurant is located in an inconspicuous corner of the most beautiful garden in all of Paris, the Palais Royale. I think these pictures prove that I don’t need to explain how absolutely magnificent the decor is.
Stinky cheeses, creamy cheeses, truffle cheeses oh my!
I swear to God, at one time on our table were 11 different desserts.
My past fellow diners have included Colette, John Cocteau, Napoleon and Josephine and Victor Hugo. Good company.
A nice digestif to end the experience. I had already had pink champagne and a bottle of red wine before this so needless to say I was toast.
