Subject: Re: La Tour d'Argent
Hi Candice,

I mean that in our opinion LTD'A is way too expensive for what it is now regarding food, atmosphere and even service. Favored mainly by tourists, mostly Japanese, it has become a place that Parisians seem to have left aside when they are looking for a fine restaurant.

It seems that Sandy feels the same way regarding Maxim's and I am sure she is absolutely right (I haven't been there in many years).

It seems to me that once a place becomes a status symbol for us -tourists- and is favored day-in day-out by many of us, food and service standards are lowered.
