La Tour D'Argent

For those interested, here are two photos from the old and long out-of -print book (part of a series, Foods of the World) put out by Time Inc. in the early 1970's. Its a great book with a lot of history and some great recipes.
This one from which these pictures are taken is "Classic French Cooking".
One chapter features several of the Parisian 3 star restaurants which at the time were Lasserre, Maxim's, Grand Véfour and of course Tour D'Argent. The photos and the bit of text show why this restaurant had 3 stars.
Enjoy!

Try Jamin which is located on the other side of the street facing Passiflore. In the 6th: Sensing is great (part of Guy Martin's constellation). For those who can wait a couple of monthes for a reservation: L'Astrance (** Michelin). All the best to my fellow loungers, Berny
