I had some of the most memorable culinary experiences there, such as the 2006 Xmas dinner which was my first prix-fixe multi-course meal, and Valentine’s Day dinner with Jonathan who wrote a wonderful review for Potatomao.

La Table de Joel Robuchon (Paris: 17e )

By in 01: Paris, Favorite Food Entries
