Le Grand Véfour – – The Return

No comments

My last dining adventure at Le Grand Véfour was May 2013. Two years later I’m back and can’t wait to indulge again.  At last, the hour arrived and the return to Le Grand Véfour was in full swing as Chef Guy Martin once again met us at the door and welcomed us back to what can only be summed up as – – “Ultimate.”   This time we occupied the booths of  Emmanuel BERL, journalist, essayist and historian  and  Jean COCTEAU, writer, designer, playwright, artist and filmmaker.  My view of this regal dinning destination and the names of many who have dined here is one to behold, but being a connoisseur of exceptional cuisine, my anticipation for Chef Martin’s next masterpiece of flavors and textures was to much to stand.  When our first course arrived and I took my first bite, I slowly drifted into that wonderful state gastronomic ecstasy.  Lunch at Le Grand Véfour is the right thing to do!!!
