Dinner reservations for seven?
My wife and I will be taking our children + a couple of spouses to Paris in a few months. The total group will consist of seven adults. Partly because their tastes run in this direction and partly for budgetary reasons (yours truly will be picking up all tabs), we likely will picnic at noon and focus our dinners on old-school places (Quincy, Josephine, Chez George (2d arr.), La Grille and maybe one of the brasseries), wine bars (Les Papilles, La Cave Beauvau, Le Bistral) and maybe one or two newer, moderate places (perhaps Le Reminet or Itineraires). I am familiar with all these places but have never considered them in the context of a larger group. Hence, my questions: (1) are the places just named able to accommodate a group of seven at one table? (2) will they accept dinner reservations at a prime time hour (say, 8:30 or 9:00) for a group of that size? We don't require private rooms, and I would prefer to avoid them. Thanks in advance for any insights.
