By far one of the best restaurants in Paris! I recently visited this restaurant with my family. We had a wonderful time. The food was excellent and Catherine Reed was incredibly charming! Be sure to order the tomato tart. It was incredible!

Reed is an amazing restaurant in a city of wonderful and over the top eating. It is obvious that Catherine loves what she does, you feel like she is welcoming you to her home, not just her restaurant. The food is as described by others,...More

Try to email her. Email is on her site. I was not able to include it here. She works a lot and it is easier to reach her this way. Good luck. You will truly enjoy your time with her and you'll learn a lot in the process.
