Tucked away, right around the corner from us, is the lovely little Chinese Restaurant Tang. We were walking home a different way than usual and just happened upon it. Tang is a one star Michelin restaurant with a lovely boutique setting one block from Rue de la Pompe. We decided to go for lunch.
For my 60th birthday we decided to go to Guy Savoy for dinner. Guy Savoy is a world-renowned French chef, and is the Head Chef and owner of the Guy Savoy restaurant in Paris and sister restaurant in Las Vegas. We have never visited in Las Vegas so we decided to go in Paris. Guy Savoy is the youngest of the group of renowned chefs who invented “Nouvelle Cuisine”, taking a lighter and more delicate approach to classic French cooking. The Paris restaurant has garnered 3 Michelin stars, being elevated in 2002. The restaurant was ranked 34th in the Elite Traveler World's Top Restaurants Guide 2012 and has been ranked multiple times in the Restaurant Magazine Top 50 Restaurants in the world. We took a cab since it was raining and we were dressed up. As we arrived, a greeter, quite separate from the handsome young man pictured above, opened the cab door and greeted us quite warmly, as if we were old family friends.
