Sunday dinner - perhaps only a cafe? Plus update
Around a week ago y'all pitched in to help me determine restaurants for our Paris stay. After much consideration, blog posts and photos later (thanks John, Meg & Souphie!) we reserved dinners at Rino, L'Agrume and ZKG (all spoke wonderful English though I did ask in French before if they did).
I did try to call Frenchie who fittingly spoke only in French to say that Mai Complet! Though according to this board even getting a live person on the line seems to be a major accomplishment :-)
I two questions for you now:
1. A place for Sunday along the same price range and gastronomic style? Perhaps a cafe as those seem to be open every day?
2. On the 20th we're going to see Natalie Merchant at the Alhambra [21 Rue Yves Toudic, 75010] Any recommendations for a quick dinner before the show near by?

Do you mean 20 May? What time is the show?
Most restaurants do not open before 7:30pm for dinner. Very few open at 7 but will serve at 7:30. Your options are: go to any of the cool cafés on and near Canal St Martin, i.e. Chez Prune, or wait until after your concert and reserve for the 10:30pm shift.
Try to beg a table at Le Chateaubriand.
Or try Cantine de Quentin. Both ae within walking distance from rue Yves Toudic.
