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

        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

            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.

            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;
