I learned about Paris Prestige, through an ad in the local paper and was instantly intrigued. The location they occupy was previously a Jerry’s, then SpiceTown.
The decor: You can clearly see the remnants of the previous occupants, not exactly a french or paris bistro feel. What I can say is that it was tidy and clean. What I’d like to see is a new, brighter floor instead of the current dark carpet, linen napkins, and the placemats made of drawer liners should go.
The service: Our servers were very pleasant and helpful.
The food: If you’re looking for haute cuisine, don’t expect to find it here. Paris Prestige offers a small selection of french classics.
- Taste – We ordered a ham and swiss croissant, croque monsieur, grilled cheese with a raspberry soda. My husband and I loved the bechamel on the sandwiches. The salad that came with the croque looked naked, but was actually spritzed with light vinaigrette, yum. Lunch was simple, light, and tasty.
- Presentation – Looked good to me.
- Price – $5-$10 for lunch, both of us ate for $23 including tip. Now it’s not Mickey D’s dollar menu cheap, but it’s not Mickey D’s quality either. I feel that Paris Prestige is moderately priced.
The VUrdict: Lunch at Paris Prestige was a test-run of the restaurant to see if they were worth coming back to for dinner, and the answer is yes. A nice and tasty change from the usual Asian, Italian, or Latin fare. The location isn’t the best, being tucked away on Ashburn road, which is probably why the previous two owners are no longer there, but hopefully the third try’s a charm?
