Le Cinq ♥ ♥ ♥


I love absolutely everything about the Four Seasons Paris.

My very first lunch in Paris was at the two Michelin star Le Cinq

The dining room looks so elegant in golds and grays

Love the simple yet tasteful table setting

Had a glass of Champagne Deutz Rose 2007 to freshen myself up.
(I was still a bit disoriented from the hop on hop off bus. Lol!)

I saw chopsticks on other tables, too, but I just thought it would be fun to ask my waiter if he
gave me the chopsticks because I am Chinese. The poor guy struggled with his answer and
explained as gracefully as possible that the first course was to be eaten with the instrument.
Sometimes I can't help being silly like that. :P



To get a taste of Chef Eric Briffard's signature dishes, I had Le Cinq's Summer Gourmet Tasting Menu.

Le Cinq is really a place for lovers. Everyone in the room was in pairs.
