  Fancy meeting you here
by jenn_d

On our final night in Paris we decided to splurge- just a bit and also initiate ourselves to truly French cuisine. Friends from home had just flown in from Ireland that day and we al agreed that we wanted something special on our only night in Paris together. We found La Truffiere in restaraunt guide in our hotel and were charmed by the idea of dining in an old wine cellar.

The service here was impeccable. I had a glass of champagne in my hand almost immediately. The waiter recommended a truly splendid wine which I have yet to find here in the states.

I would note that the menu does not have prices. We were just a wee bit shocked to find that bottle of wine we enjoyed was 160 Euro and my dinner salad was 29! Don't even ask me what the grand totalwas!

Favorite Dish: Most of the dishes here contain truffles in some form or another.
