Dinner in Paris on a Sunday night...
I and 3 other friends are completing a charity cycle ride from London to Paris, next Sunday 6th March. We will be pretty wrecked but want to make sure we have a decent feed to make the most of our time there. I'm in Paris regularly for work but not on a Sunday so not quite sure what is open and likely to be available just a week away. What we need is a table for 6 at 8pm ish which does good hearty French food with a budget of €30 - 35 (exc drinks). We're staying in the opera district so something nice and central would be great. Something such as a Bib Gourmand restaurant would be very good but as I say not sure what is open etc...
Thank you all for your assistance!!
I would like to give Cafe des Musees a hearty recommendation. We arrived at 10:25 on a Sunday evening, concerned that we had chosen the worst day and time of the week to be in need of food. We ordered a smoked salmon starter and the escargot and mushroom starter. I also ordered the vegetable cocotte. Everything was delicious. The flavors were subtle, buttery, and well rounded.
Chez Flottes, on rue Cambon, is a brasserie with decent food and is a reasonable walk from the Opera area. Try the Conft de Canard which is served with Aligot. If you want to be really informal, get a table in the bar area.
