An American food critic has put France's famed restaurant bible, the Michelin guide, to the test -- and found most of its top Paris listings not worth their exorbitant prices, with lesser-known upstart eateries offering far better value.Meg Zimbeck, who runs Paris By Mouth, a respected online review site that also provides foodie tours to English-speaking visitors, backed up her argument with research: four months of anonymous dining in all Paris restaurants boasting two or three Michelin stars.Food writers are no longer reimbursed by publications for the restaurant bills they incur, she told AFP, so her project was financed from profits from her company's tours.What she found, after booking into 16 restaurants under false names and paying a total 7,150 euros ($8,086) for the meals, was that Michelin's recommendations didn't always deliver.
