May 8th Bank Holiday WHICH RESTAURANTS ARE OPEN?
I just received an e mail from my hotel confirming my dinner and lunch reservations. Apprently Au Fil de Saisons is closed on Tuesday May 8th because it is a bank holiday. Does this mean all restaurants are closed on the 8th of May?? I am so disappointed!! Does anyone know of any good restaurants that are open???Please help fellow chowhounds!!!
Smaller neighbourhood bistrots closed on Sunday (and Monday, like Au Fil de Saisons Monday for lunch) just make 'le pont' adding that Tuesday. This makes a nice break for the staff.
Also, lots of Parisians will take a long weekend and will be out of town (similarly to the May 1 weekend).
Other than that, brasseries and larger places will be open in general.
