I am far from a lady who lunches because usually I am eating at my office in a particular city or traveling for business but when in Paris I like to pretend that I am leading a life of leisure for a few hours and have lunch at L’AVENUE. Right on the Avenue Montaigne it is fun for people watching and just taking in the sights. TRENDY, YES but the food is really great as is the service. You could probably cut the US deficit by auctioning the BIRKIN bags on display!
