Les 101 de Taillevent, Paris

I ventured over to the First District and Enjoyed a nice lunch and some fine wines at Les 101 de Taillevent. This is a casual wine bar/bistro by the owner of the landmark Talievent. It retained 3 Michelin stars for 34 years but finally was demoted to two stars in the 2007 Michelin France guide. The star system is so strict and important to chefs that they have been know to commit suicide over a demotion. It is the highest honor to hold a 3 star rating for even one year. There are only 50, 3 star restaurants in the world. The Sommelier is the same for Les 101 as Taillivent and is among the best in the world. Les 101 is named for the 101 wines available by the glass. The food and wine pairings are world class and I highly recommend a stopping in for lucnh or dinner. You can enjoy the Taillevent experience without the Taillivent price.

About Ivan Klugman

Born in New York and raised on Long Island. my Passion for photography became apparent at age eleven. I earned money waiting tables at my farter's restraurant and purchased a Pentax Spotmatic. I proceeded with photography passionately until I was sixteen when I took my first flying lesson. My photography took a back seat to my flying for many years. Now I'm an airline Captain flying internationally. I consider myself a gourmet, eating at the finer restaurants of France and Italy. I also have an interest in wine and enjoy visiting the major wine regions of Italy, France and The United States. About 7 years ago I started to combine my passions for FOOD, WINE and Photography by photographing the food and wine I consumed on vacation. I sent some of these out to be framed when the gallery owner suggested I sell these photos to others: The Photo Gourmet INC was born. I currently reside in Delray Beach Florida with my lovely wife of tens years Lori. We enjoy flying around the world eating, drinking and photographing.
