After making your way to a wine restaurant near the Louvre, your evening of fine food and wine in Paris begins with a glass of Champagne. In a city renowned for its high quality cuisine, this restaurant offers the chance to enjoy delicious dishes made with only the finest fresh and seasonal produce, and designed to go perfectly with the wide variety of wines available.
Alongside your meal, enjoy three different glasses of wine -- each paired with the separate courses to complement your food. Note each wines complex flavors and tones, and you'll understand the role that wine plays in fine dining.
End your dinner with a classic digestif -- an alcoholic drink (usually a fortified wine or liquor) that aids digestion and then leave the restaurant to continue your night in Paris on your own.
