Confused for Last Night in Paris

I appreciated everyone's help with my Bordier Butter issue. But now I realized I'm not good for my dinner in Paris after seeing the recent "Le Comptoir du Relais" post.

My friend who suggested it acted like he walked in easily for dinner. Must of been beginner luck!
I should have known better as I've made reservations 2-3 months in advance at some Cali restaurants.

So I'm thinking I should try to make a reservation somewhere else and not be at their mercy.
(I was mostly looking forward to the cheese and jam course at Le Comptoir du Relais. I love to make jams. )

Now thinking of trying Fish, Le Duc, Au Gourmand, L'Entetee or Chez L'ami it too late in the game to make reservations for a Friday?

Any suggestions on what I should do for dinner on Friday Sept. 18th would be very appreciated. It will be our last night in Europe and we would love to end it with a wonderful meal. 75-100 euro a head at most(including wine) Also we'd love a young and fun atmosphere.

BUT of course most of all great food, we will eat any and everything. Thanks for any help offered.

  1. More than 15 days before your meal? I think you'll be able to get a reservation at these restaurants, even l'Ami Jean, which I would heartily recommend. If you speak French, try to have a table near the kitchen, seeing and more importantly hearing Jego is a show of its own class.
    Can't speak for the four other ones you mentioned, though.

      I agree with Olivier; now should be enough time.

        Also, I bet you'll have no difficulty getting a seat at Comptoir du Relais if you call the same day. But I think your alternatives are better.
