Paris on Sunday. Lunch and Dinner

We will be in Paris on Sunday and our hotel has no suggestions for lunch or dinner. We are not particularly concerned with location or price but we don't need to break the bank either. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks.

  1. Check out this thread about Sunday dinners

    Also we have had good meals at L'Ardoise in the 1st and at Fish in the 6th. We also like to go to the market on Blvd Raspail in the morning and get the galettes to munch on while we wander.

    1. My sunday addresses: L'Auberge Bressane, Tong Yen, Robuchon, Senderens, Gagnaire (night only), Asia palace, La Butte Chaillot (for roast chicken), La Rotonde, Baskin Robbins, La Grande Cascade, Cazaudehore (in Saint Germain en Laye, 25km west of Paris).. check recent threads indeed as there are many other recs.

      1. You should get Michelin Red Paris Guide. It has that kind of information plus a lot more on types of food, late night dining, locations, degree of expense and so on.

        1. We've suggested to other friends that they try L'Ardoise on a Sunday night, and they enjoyed their meal greatly. Another choice for a reasonable meal in a place with a neighborhood feel is Le Petit Pointoise, in the 5th.

          1. Café de l’espanade-52 rue fabert-7th-01 47 05 38 80 M-Invalides is a very good Costes Bros place for Sunday lunch or dinner in the 7th 2 blocks from the Rodin Museum. Its club sandwich was rated the best in Paris by Le Figaro and its pastas and fish are excellent. Small terrace outside and reservations are mandatory.

              Agree that the Café de l'Esplanade can be quite pleasant and the view is terrific. Besides, almost no traffic in front of you while enjoying the outdoor terrace. However, I find their club sandwich pretty much so-so. In fact, Figaroscope had two 9/10, L'Esplanade and Harry's Bar for its version. Can't comment on Harry's Bar, but I really like the version at Duke's bar (Hotel Westminster) which was rated 8/10. A place, I like for its being so cozy. A perfect spot for a pre- or after-opera snack. Not to forget its Celadon and Petit Celadon (on weekends).
              Le Tourville (another Costes Bros place) on Place de l'Ecole Militaire isn't too bad either, when solo. Great for people watching or a brunch. Sort of a hip café/lounge, very popular with young folks living in the 7th arr. Rather on the expensive side though (like all Costes Bros places).
