First night in Paris, had dinner with Linda at Sola, a wonderful Japanese/French fusion restaurant located in the 5th district. Eight courses and three hours of pure deliciousness! Arigatou gozaimasu to Chef Hiroki for creating this beautiful meal, and to the Sola staff for your first class service. I have never spent so much on one meal but it was worth every euro. I recommend making reservations at least a few days in advance, and requesting a table in the Japanese room.
