Maybe just go for desert (Chartreuse Souffle)

We don’t spend much time in Paris going to fancy restaurants. I took a career detour to culinary school, spent seven years as a chef in high-end restaurants and am not easily impressed by salty, rich, fatty foods. However during a rare lunch at an Alain Ducasse restaurant, I had a Chartreuse Souffle for desert which made a lasting impression. An exquisitely executed souffle, flavored with the perfect amount of Chartreuse liquor.
