  1. Easy for me, Atelier de Joel Robuchon, just made reservation today. You can do the whole thing on line and then reconfirm on line the day before if you wish;

      La Rotonde , Blvd. Montparnasse, and Le Parc aux Cerfs, Rue Vavin, both in the 6th arr. Pasco and Bistrot de Breteuil, in the 7th arr.

      Also, La Fontaine de Mars, 7th arr:

        From a different post of the OP, I gather this:

        <<We are staying a little north of Montparnasse and slightly west of the St. Germaine de Pres area. We need a lunch and a Dinner suggestion for Sunday.>>

        Consequently, Montparnasse offers quite some options. It's very lively, even late at night.
        As for lunch, I'd just head for a café in the area you'll be at that time. Discover the Marais is perfect on a Sunday with lots of options, too.

      2. My new favourite restaurant happens to be open on sundays, so that may be it: Le Cinq. At the same time, I don't know if chef Briffard will be there on sundays and whether it will make a difference.

        Other than that, I like DCM's and Dodo's suggestion. I am also a big fan of l'Auberge Bressanne on av. de la Motte Piquet. And La Véranda in Versailles. Actually, la Véranda is probably my ideal spot for a sunday lunch.

        And, on gentler budgets, I would totally go Chinese, but that's a long held debate on this forum, and I am very alone in it. Chez Papa is also a decent budget option for French food on sundays.

          Chinatown in Paris, while small, has good noodle shops, Tang Freres, great Asian supermarket, and a few good, inexpensive and interesting restaurants

        2. Mon Vieil Ami on the Ile St-Louis.

          1. Le Petit Pontoise is open Sundays and very close to where you are. Really lovely meal there!
