Easter week in Paris - what's open?

I know most everything will be closed Easter Monday, but what about later that week? -- in particular, will Michelin-starred-level places be open, say on the Thursday, Friday, Saturday following Easter?

Thanks in advance.

  1. I have spent 2 of the last 3 Easters having a grand dejeuner at Drouant.

    1. I don't believe Easter will present problems, in many respects it will be the same as any weekend with a public holiday. The Paris school holidays are not until late April so families won't be taking off during Easter week.

      1. "I know most everything will be closed Easter Monday,"
        Not necessarily.
        Call, it depends, who knows, Monday openings now are so rare (as Paga says "Mondays are the new Saturdays), on ne sais jamais.
        I just did Sunday summaries on Mondays and holidays (XMas but much the same) -

        1. Thank you! My husband and I just booked a flight with miles - not much else was still available in April. We're arriving Easter Monday morning, leaving the following Sunday, and were a bit worried we'd end up with few options that week. Looking forward to mining this board for great ideas!

            The Michelin website is still your best source for opening days ---
