Respond to Review of CLOSED: The Gentle Gourmet
Review: The Gentle Gourmet is by far the best place to eat in Paris for both vegetarians and vegans; the latter are well served since all the food is vegan. It is essential, of course, to book in advance. It is also essential to realise that this is not a restaurant; in effect, one goes on a dinner party blind date, where both the food and the comapany are unknown beforehand. In our case, both were excellent and, in fact, the element of surprise about the food was a definite plus. It is possible to say in adavance if there are things you do not like or are allergic to. In our case, the owners joined us for drinks but not for dinner. But they were lovely to talk to; they have just established a French Vegan Society and were in the process of organising a Vegan Fair. In summary, provided you are happy to dine with other people, this is an absolutely wonderful experience. Do not miss it!
