Best restaurant in Paris open on Sunday night

Will be in Paris on a Sunday night in May with my wife and looking for a top flight restaurant to celebrate our anniversary as part of a bigger trip in Europe. Unfortunately, most of the top tier restaurants (Taillevent, Robuchon, Michael Rostang, etc,) are closed on Sunday and I wanted to see if there are recommendations for restaurants of that caliber that are open on Sunday.

Thanks for any suggestions!

          How much are the course meals at La Grande Cascade, i couldnt decipher the menu because it was all in french, i didnt understand the different price points for dinner

          if someone could explain that to me that would be great

          also the pricing difference between there and le cinq would be great

          1. re: Dapuma

            Menu du marché (market menu) served at both lunch and dinner, includes 3 courses. Without drinks it's €65, or if you pay €85 you get a glass of wine with the starter, another with the main (chosen for you; you don't get to pick which!), mineral water, coffee and petits-fours.

            Menu découverte (discovery menu) has to be served to the entire table and costs €135. Again, if you want to have the dishes accompanied by wines, add €45.

            Menu dégustation (tasting menu) is €185 (again must be taken by the whole party at your table) and is an extra €69 if you want accompanying drinks.

            All prices include taxes and service charges, so no tips necessary. And finally they are very clear that they don't take cheques! Hope that helps.

              super helpful thanks so much

              i dont suppose anyone knows how much le cinq's different dinner option prices are at the moment?

                They don't change much. I don't know them off the top of my head, but there's the 90ish euro lunch, the 170-ish seasonal menu, the 260-ish tasting, and the scary ALC prices (count 100+ for an entree).

                Why do I bother responding? The easy response to ALL those questions is at . For this time, here's what it says:
                Menu: 78€ (déj.) , 160€ - 230€ - Carte: 180€/335€
