Thanks so much for all the great info on here. I am heading to Paris for 4 days in August and have been trying to do a ton of research regarding where to eat. I have many friends who are foodies that have been to Paris, and to my surprise, all of them say that the food is terribly overrated there. This includes friends where money is no object, had done their research before, etc.
I am completely surprised that this is their opinion of food Paris and can only think something isn't right. I'm curious if you have any advice so I have a different experience from them with the food? I can go off of reviews, but I feel like reading all of them has just confused me more. I know that regardless of one person loving a place, someone else can have a bad experience (e.g I've had this happen plenty of times where "great restaurants" treated me differently simply because I am in my 20's). I will be celebrating an engagement in Paris, so I want to have a great experience. Thanks in advance for any advice/suggestions you may have. Have a good one!
