Ledoyen, Gagnaire and l’Ambroisie : certainly not old nor classic.
Ambroisie might be classic, but classic 1980s-1990s.
Gagnaire is classic 1990-2000s.

Le Vieux Paris d'Arcole, two minutes walk from Notre Dame, is old and classic, and quite good.


How can you even mention Procope in the same paragraph as food?

John Talbott

"Procope" For the record, for the record.

As for Chrisos - this was entitled "3. Old favorites of my countryfolk."

Margaret Pilgrim

I followed your essay until the final paragraph and the resulting recommendations, then I (or they) fell off the track. I can't understand how the last 5 choices can be called old or in fact classic. The paint is barely dry in several, and the classics get at least a face-job if not a complete makeover in most of them.

But then, it was a silly question to pose a hipster. ;)

John Talbott

O. Henry was always my short story idol.
