Booking a Chic Paris Table A Deux
Q:I'm heading off to Paris a about 6 weeks, and want to check out some of the "hip" restaurants. What is the best way to get a reservation?

-- "Kimberly V"


A:Aha.
Ma cherie.

IF you speak French, then you should call the ressies yourself.
IF you're version of French is something that's even worse than Edith Piaf on a bad day meets Pepe Le Pu doused with a bit of cigarette smoke THEN....

let the concierge do the leg work for you.
And they will actually do a good job, unlike some other cities.
So pick a good hotel, such as the Costes or the Georges V and ask for their help.
Remember that a little gratitude of a certain kind never hurts to grease the wheels.
