Lunch near the Musee du Luxembourg

Looking for recommendations for the above.
I'm planning on visiting the week between
Christmas and New Year's - thanks!

  1. La Ferrandaise or La Maison du Jardin, both on de Rue Vaugirard and only steps away from the museum. Don't miss the temporary Tiffany exhibit at the Luxembourg. Small, but fine. Sometimes with long lines. Get a time-slot ticket at FNAC.

    Make sure, they're open while there. Same goes for other smaller bistrots.

      Agreed on both but I had a totally different experience at the Museum; no line at 2:30 PM; great stuff one (me) has never seen, esp the carpet and Montreal Church windows..

        With the lines it's similar as with the weather: You never can tell for sure.
        However, between Xmas and NY, museums are in general pretty much full.
