Sunday dinner - perhaps only a cafe? Plus update

  • 6

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?

Thanks again!
Isaac

        Thanks.
        I gather that Sunday is family time in Paris?

        1. re: Laidback

          Their website has not been updated--are they open for Sunday lunch also?

        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.

            Thanks for the ideas - Canal St. Martin sounds great.
