It's very busy in the Parisian Restaurant. As a scooter zips by, inside the waiter rushes between the tables as the nervous young man gets ready to propose with the ring! It's just as hectic behind the scenes, with the chef busily preparing the food. This beautifully detailed building is the setting for so many stories and is a great addition to the modular building series. The Parisian Restaurant has a fully-stocked, blue and white tiled kitchen with tableware as well as a cozy apartment with pull-down bed, kitchenette and fireplace. On the top floor is the artist's room with a studio that includes a cast iron heater, easel, paintbrush and two works of art by the aspiring artist. Outside, stairs lead down to the roof terrace lined with hanging lanterns and flowers where the diners eat alfresco-style. This amazing Parisian Restaurant model even includes a facade with croissants, clams and feather details that recapture the feel of Paris. Includes 5 minifigures: chef, waiter, girl and a romantic couple.
This set is great, an amazing build, great look, and amazing detail. I can make a ton of cool scenes with the minifigures. My only problems would be how on the very first page i wasnt supplied with all 5 1 by 6 flats and it looks a little odd, and that, on the stairs between the first and second floor, there is a little gap.
Extremely good detail very interesting shapes and techniques used a very cool display piece and at a very reasonable price sad to see it discontinued soon flag I got to get this set before it was going to be retired
So I got this set last Christmas and believe it is one of the greatest sets I have ever purchased. It was a fantastic build and the detail is beautiful. I absolutely love this set. Each floor has a perfect interior. Highly recommend.
If you have any of the Lego Creator Expert City then I would highly suggest you add this to your collection. Nice and simple build, minus the decorations on the top, which aren't too bad. It took my wife and I about a week (hour or so each night) to complete.
This was my first build in the creator expert line and I absoutley LOVED all the details in this build. I know I could have knocked this out faster, but like many other builders noted in thier reviews I had to stop and marvel at the level to detail. I'm already making plans for my next (several) purchase(s) in this line - just fantastic!
