Since this volume is entirely in French, it is a motivating tool ...for me to significantly increase my command of French prior to our next trip to Paris......and it has become a language tool. Once mastered, it offers the unique Michelin take on resturants.
i missed the words french edition(was it always with the title) so it was basically useless to me

took a very long time to arrive...i believe it was over 3 weeks

first time that i have been unhappy with that's not bad!
A long day and an impulse purchase...why would amazon sell the French edition anyway? THIS IS THE FRENCH LANGUAGE EDITION BUT THE REVIEW IS IN ENGLISH...WTF?
From Julia Child's "My life in France" or Chelminski's "The Perfectionist: Life and Death in Haute Cuisine" one learns quickly the importance the French place on Michelin's ratings of restaurants; it is their golden standard. If you enjoy food, "Michelin Red Guide" will quickly become your indispensable companion. The book is divided into 20 arrondissement (districts) of Paris, each one starting with a colour map and markings of individual restaurant locations (something one will not find in "Zagat") - that is very practical. Only the good, better and the best restaurants are committed place in this book (it's a food guide, not Britannica and the ones which didn't make the cut can almost always serve smoked salmon with capers anyhow). My husband and I found the descriptions of the restaurants we tried to be very accurate in regards to food/dishes recommended, ambiance, service and prices. Walking through Paris, we were able to pull a guide and decide where we wanted to have lunch on a particular day. One day, we chose to lunch at Benoit but we haven't made advanced reservations. I pulled my Michelin red book and, with a smile, said: "Oh, what a pity. I've read such a great review about you in Michelin." What can I say? My husband and I enjoyed our lunch at Benoit that day. Thanks to Michelin, we had great sushi at Isami ("possibly the best raw fish in Paris"), a tiny place into which we would have never wandered on our own. If not for the guide, I would have missed on Gourmand's "the only vestige of the Art Nouveau style is the listed rest room - a must see!" And on, and on...
The Michelin guide provides information on web site addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, accepted credit cards as well as average meal prices for lunch and dinner. This is the only guide my husband and I use while in Paris. We highly recommend it.
An excellent guide to the hotels, restaurants and major museums and galleries in Paris. Very useful for pre-holiday research but rather heavy to carry around while actually sightseeing.
