To open a restaurant in the 8th Arr. in Paris is a suicide. The prices of the places are so high you hardly can survive if you only ask a reasonable price for your dish.
But Eric Martin and Thomas Boullault gave it a try some years ago, he came and did survive in a very quick tempo. His restaurant is always fully booked and with a Michelin star you only can enter when you make a reservation.
