- "Strawberry and basil gaspacho?" —@robinschulie
- "And -eww- chocolate AND foie gras macaron. The waiter was polite but showed a little disgust." —@robinschulie
- "As you can see my plate (1st one) I did try the chocolate/foie gras macaron. I'd'rather not comment." —@robinschulie
- "The rest of the buffet is pretty nice though.... So i can't complain!" —@robinschulie
- "Givenchy! Chic 'cafeteria' - black of course - with giant posters of the campaign - ultra chic" —@robinschulie
One of our favorite people ever, Maria Luisa's Robin Schulié has, all week, been on a culinary tour through the Paris showrooms of luxury designers—some of our favorite behind-the-scenes peeks so far have been at Maison Martin Margiela, Ann Demeulemeester, and Proenza Schouler. Today, he's at Givenchy, where the powers-that-be have opted for a more, um, experimental menu this season—feta cheese cubes accompanied with pipettes of soy sauce; foie gras-laced chocolate macarons (!?); and strawberry-basil gazpacho. Yum? No yum? Check out Schulié's commentary after the jump.
