Coincidentally, I read an article recently about “inexpensive” Michelin starred restaurants in Paris…
written last year, when people were still traveling.
It recommended “saving” money by going for lunch instead of dinner…
and then listed some one star (out of a possible five) places where you could have lunch for “only” about 50 to 90 Euros per person…
and that’s before any wine… and not counting tax, and tips.
The Euro is worth a little more than a US dollar.
At one, with a 65 Euro prix fixe lunch (almost $75 US) it recommended a 45 Euro tasting flight of wine.
110 Euros each… almost $125 US… isn’t on most bargain budgets…. certainly not mine.
But it was being compared to DINNER at almost any FIVE Michelin star restaurant,…. which usually must be booked months in advance
and costs at least $500 per person…. sometimes far more… some more than $1,000!
Good luck, Claire.
