New Years Day Lunch

I will be in Paris over new year, will restaurants be open on new years day for lunch? I imagine a fair few will be shut but I particularly wanted to go to either Chez l'ami Jean or La Ferrandaise. Also, I would like to go to Angelinas for a hot chocolate, is this likely to be open? Any other new years day suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  1. CAJ will not only be closed on NYD, but during the whole holiday season, like most bistronomiques run by one chef only.

        I too will be looking for somewhere for NY day lunch or dinner so will keep my eyes peeled.

        I will be in Paris from the 27th Dec to 02nd Jan & whilst I have put some research into the places that I woud like to dine at throughout the week, I was going to book either closer to the time or even once I arrived as my intinerary is slightly loose. As souphie has advised above, that some places will be closed - I assume that there will still be a fair selection of places open? or would it be recomended to serch a little harder & have a hit list of place that are open perhaps there will be enough around for me to book a few days in advance?
