"I am going to Maxims's ..." sings Danilo in Léhar's operetta the Merry Widow, and as a parisian landmark the restaurant is almost as famous as Eiffel Tower. So, armed with a pretty young parisian débutante, where better to go for a stylish lunch?  The extravagant swirling belle époque decor lives up  to its reputation, and the slight hint of shabbiness only adds to charm.  We were expecting a room crammed with international tourists and assorted glitterati; but, aside from our own glamorous presence, there were just four other dinners, two mature french businessmen exploring the wrongs of the modern world, and a pair of stout English ladies straight out of Agatha Christie, who boomed in fruity tones their desire for 'pancakes'. Word had it that the cooking was no longer great, but despite the lack of modern fripperies such as appetizing nibbles, a groaning plate of green asparagus with sauce mousseline impressed us, even if the terrine of duck with truffles and foie gras was only adequate. Our comforting main course was a plump Challans duck for two, perfectly roasted with accompanying baby turnips and salsify. The puddings were a classic millefeuille and a more elaborate construction of violet-scented wild strawberries with a rhubarb sorbet, which was pronounced as delicious by the debutante, who by now had me firmly marked as an old-timer. The naughty 90s of Maxim's are long past, but the staff were wonderfully old-school, and the bottle of Maxim's own Mercurey surprisingly delicious. A time-warp experience, which is your budget can bear it still has a unique, dusty magic.
