I feel very sorry that you find our cuisine that common. We clearly don't pretend to be the best restaurant in Paris and there are some other places that I deeply respect... But still being proud of what we do.

The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
