LEGO Creator #10243 Parisian Restaurant Review

New year coming so do the new modular house. Here's a review on next year modular house by dj2005 in Eurobricks and below picture is taken from the review:

I have a couple of friends that are waiting for this set to be release and I guess most of them in my contact are waiting for this to be released. I do not own this set yet and I cannot talk much about it but judging from the picture when it was announced, it seems to be smaller but does not means it sucks. Design wise it looks really good and you have both nicely design interior and exterior. Another bonus would be the new scooter which some prefer customs.

For those that have started modular house collection, I guess there is no escape, all it need is just one set and you are done for good (like me). While for those that have not started and are into such great design of building by LEGO, this is the time.

Here's the details of the set (announced in Oct):

#10243 Parisian Restaurant
2,469 pieces.
US $159.99 /  UK 132.99 £

Have an unforgettable evening at the amazing Parisian Restaurant!

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.
