    All good.
    Louis and Jean are not cheap.
    Too late for Frenchie. The wait is around 2 to 3 months.
    Sorriest, regulars on France forum are hypnotized by requests very similar to yours about twice a week. Your request, I'm afraid, is Ground Hog Day. Please help us help you and use the search function and then come back to us thanx.

      Please do look around here; there are many places one can get into the same day that are lower priced and have no long rez list at lunch - vide: MBC, MiniPalais, L'Agape, 104 Grandes Tables, Concert de la Cuisine, Moustache, the original Regalade, l'Agrume - well, you get the point.

      "we prefer great cheap food"

      In the Marais this could be Café des Musées; good? for sure; cheap? , affirmative; great ? probably not, but great is like beauty and the beholder's eye.

        I was not impressed by my only meal at the Café des Musées the wek it was reviewed in 'Scope but after Simon's recent rave. have decided to give it another try (yes even I can change my mind.)
