Spring in the first, yes that Spring, opens soon - truly - Hot news!

John Talbott Jun 24, 2010 02:18 PM

There will truly be a soft opening this upcoming week of the amazing new Spring, which I admittedly have a conflict of interest (emotional and relational not financial) in promoting but it's an amazing space with a cool decor, great cooking eqpt/counters and of course a talented staff. Me, I'm looking forward to it and some photos are at John Talbott's haunt http://johntalbottsparis.typepad.com/....

    Great, thanks, but how does one get on the email list?

      Yeah! I've already sent Daniel an e-mail for a reservation this fall. Can't wait to taste his brilliance once again.

        I tried writing to contact@springparis.fr but the email got returned for user quota exceeded. Is there another way to contact them?? This is really exciting news!

          "I tried writing to contact@springparis.fr but the email got returned for user quota exceeded."

          I would think that this would be the norm for the foreseeable future.

            My own method is like that I use at Frenchie's; I drop by and negotiate for weeks in advance. Much as I love him (and Marie, and Josh, and Fabien, etc) prompt answering phones, emails, telepathy is not what they're known for. A bonus in dropping by the boutique is that one always finds something nice for dinner.

              I sent them an email August 17 and received an automatic reply telling me to phone the restaurant for reservations (which I successfully did around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday the 24th). He specified that it's a no-choice, no-substitution menu, so he wanted to be sure that my wife and I are omnivores!

        OK, the big boys are back in town and we smalltime bloggers have been leapfrogged. Both A Nous Paris and Figaroscope gave Spring high marks this week. So, not to sow panic, but make your reservations ASAP.

            Sorry, my method uses shoeleather.
