Dining Near the Intercontinental on Rue Scribe

I am looking for a few restaurant ideas for dinner with colleagues. If possible, I would like things that are within walking distance of the hotel.

French cuisine, moderately priced, not looking for anything too expensive or fancy/formal. Nice atmosphere, fun, or funky or artsy are great.

Mostly want to be able to enjoy the food and atmosphere and converese.

Thanks,

    As an aside, on Rue Scribe is the perfume museum in Fragonard. It is free and really well-done

      I used to enjoy greatly L'Absinthe, a modernish bistro on the very hip Place du Marché Saint-Honoré, which is not far from the Grand Hotel (still can't call it Intercontinental, such a mouthful). Then everyone complained it had gone downhill. Then someone said it was rehabilitated.

        You are describing Bistro Volnay on Rue Volney.

          Goumard, rue Duphot, would be my second choice; it's primarily a fish place with menus at 39E and 49E. Maybe a bit more formal.
