A Quick Overview Of Taillevent
Taillevent is a restaurant in Paris named after a 14th century chef and cook-book author, Guillaume Tirel, who was known as Taillevent (which means 'slice-wind' in French). Taillevent wrote one of the earliest books on French cuisine which is called 'Le Viandier'.
The restaurant, 'Le Taillevent' was opened in 1946 by André Vrinat - today there is also a brasserie, which is a little more informal than the restaurant. You can make reservations online on the website here.
The menu (which you call 'la carte' in French) includes classic dishes such as foie gras, and cuisses de grenouilles ('frogs's legs). There is a set lunch menu (when you order the 'menu' in French, you are ordering a set number of courses) which costs €82, or €98, which includes service, taxes, an apéritif and drinks. The 'menu découverte' (the tasting menu) is an eye-watering €195.00. There are no prices on 'La Carte' - so if you have to ask you probably can't afford it. ;-)
