Our first Michelin-starred dinner in Paris was at Les Climats, which everyone on the Chowhound forums had been recommending since it got its first star in 2015. The area was sat in was beautiful, overlooking a garden patio and with glass and lush greens all around. The menu was exciting: carpaccio prawns with pig trotter fritters, olive oil poached john dory with cockles, pigeon breast with black pig bacon, Mountain Beaufort cheese with crispy bread and honey, poached pears with saffron foam, and chocolate mousse with vanilla ice cream and whiskey sauce. There were lots of little extras, the chef came to talk to us, and our server worked the room in French and English, impressing us with how hard it must be to switch back and forth so frequently. The only complaint we had was with the sommelier, who ignored us for the first twenty minutes and then gave us a hard time for saying Champagne when we meant sparkling wine. We know the difference and didn't need a smug lesson on it, thanks!
