I was excited to try Le Sensing for two reasons: M. Guy Martin and because the first time I've ever been to 19, rue Brea was with my young family in the 80's when it was still Dominique. Unfortunately, the evening I tried Le Sensing with Parisien friends, he ordered a complicated dish of tuna and foie gras which messed up our meal. We were ignored for an hour and a half w/out explanation. This happened in Nov. 2006 during my last trip to Paris. The rest of the food was good but I still wonder why instead of having some amuse bouche, Le Sensing has some snacking dishes in their menu. This restaurant is quite expensive!

On a recent trip to Paris, inspired by Clotilde's best of 2006 list, my husband and I decided to try Le Sensing. We had the menu degustation with the wine pairings and I have to say, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent, we got to know our server, and spent loads of time speaking to him and others about the restaurant, the chef etc. The only downside of our experience was that except for 1 table right next to us, we were surrounded by english speaking tourists and it was our only one of 9 dinners in Paris where that happened!
One thing I still can't figure out is if this is a michelin starred place or not, the research will continue. Thank you for your recommendation Clotilde.
