A Grand in Paris

Now most people would maybe upgrade their accommodation, choosing a higher end hotel or apartment.

Some people might spend it going shopping on the Champs-Élysées, buying the latest designer fashions.

Or you could go to the world famous flea market Les Puces de Saint-Ouen and buy antiques and bric a brac.

And I’m sure a lot of people would use their thousand euros to eat and drink their way through Paris, but I’m going to take it to the next level.

If I won a grand from Orange through their Holiday Sim card competition, I would blow it all on one super extravagant meal with wine pairings.

One Thousand Euro Meal

One of the craziest meals I’ve ever had was at the one Michelin starred Le Jules Verne at the top of the Eiffel Tower. This was over a decade ago!

My sister and I took the elevator up and enjoyed an extravagant tasting menu with wine pairings while we watched the sun set from what felt like the top of the world.

Since I’ve already been to Le Jules Verne, if I won €1000 from Orange, I would pick one of Paris’s other Michelin star experiences.

Luckily for hypothetical me who has stack of hundreds in her pocket, Paris has a whopping 10 three star restaurants, 12 two star, and 94 one star offerings!

Since I’m in the mood to drink some serious vintage wines, and I’ve never been to a 3 star restaurant, I’d spend my money on an incredible meal at Guy Savoy.

Guy Savoy – a Three Star Experience

At Guy Savoy, the at least 13 course menu is €530 per person, and since I’m still gonna need wine, it’s safe to say that I will be enjoying this meal on my own.

This seafood heavy menu, think oysters, scallops, caviar, and lobster, is going to call for either a few different glasses or a bottle of Champagne to last me the whole meal.

In my dream world, I’d get wine pairings with each course, since I’m sure they have amazing sommeliers! I tried to find out how much that would cost but that information seems to be classified.

Let’s be optimistic and assume it only costs another €300 euros for my wine pairings, that still leaves me enough to leave a good tip!

*Note to Americans – you do not need to tip in French restaurants, it’s not customary!
