1st Arr Saturday 19th Feb
I know a lot of reviews have been covered here before but I have a particular request for Saturday night. My parents are staying on rue Mont Thabor and I'm looking for a restaurant nearby-ish. I've booked Le Regalade SH for Friday night, Bistrot Volnay only seems to be open Mon-Fri, Spring and l'Ardoise are both closed at the moment. Any thoughts? I'm looking for somewhere less than 200euro for three people including wine. I'd rather somewhere that's lively but relaxed, we don't want to rush, but are happy with a bit of buzz in the background.
If memory serves me right, the last time I was there I had onion soup, rack of lamb and the souffle for dessert. My SO had escargot, a spinach cheese souffle and a spoonful of my dessert, because that's all I would let her have. You are by no means restricted to ordering souffles. Their other food is really good.
Or look up the wonderful Paris-by-mouth site.
For your arrondissement:
If your indication of the arrondissement means your family does not want to walk, do check out the neighboring arrondissements on Paris-by-mouth. Depending on where your family is staying, which you did not specify, walking to a neighboring arrondissement could be closer.
