Lazare is not an open and friendly haven for travelers or gastronomes. It is a club masquerading as a restaurant, employing the sort of velvet rope snobbery that one expects to find at Le Montana or a Costes establishment. There is nothing Eric Fréchon’s kitchen could have produced which could have salvaged the worst service I’ve received in nine years of writing about Paris restaurants.
