Dinner Reservation for Next Week in Paris

  • 6

I finally got my husband to agree to a babysitter last night and therefore can spend one evening in Paris sans children. However, I'm reserving late, so I need your help.

What is the nicest place I'm likely to get reservations at this late for a Wednesday night? Price is pretty much no object, but if the suggestion is under 100 E per person, my husband would be happier. More than that would require more convincing (so links to food p*rn or reviews would be appreciated.

We're staying on the border of the 6th and 7th, and I'd like a place that would take less than 15 minutes to get to from there.

I searched, but could only find similar posts for Monday night (not as many restaurants open) or for social people (not romantic foodie dinners), so I apologize if this question has been asked before.

  1. im going to be staying in the 7th arr in june

    bear in mind i have not been to any of these places but they were suggestions from the board - and i did a fair amount of research

    Violon d'Ingres maybe can get reservations there
    Chez Jean 'Ami - not sure if romantic enough
    Le Florimond

    Those were all places that i looked at i went with chez jean ami, however not sure if you can reso in that time frame - i think all are under 100 per person not counting drinks

    im sure others can help more than me :)

      My 1st reply disappeared, only to reappear later, after I rewrote and resent a simlar post.
      So I asked the hardworking mods to delete one of them. They worked so hard they deleted both.

      Try Chez l'ami Jean.

    2. Chez L'Ami Jean is a great suggestion, but I was thinking of getting a to go order from there with the kids, and picnic somewhere. Since that would allow me to have 2 very good meals. So an alternative suggestion would be welcomed.

      Additionally, I think I'd like somewhere quieter, if at all possible.

        Splurge and go to l'Arpege, or try Josephine Chez Dumonet.

          I didn't realize CAJ did take out. Is this really possible?

            Not certain how a lot of the food will travel though - it isn't common and I have not heard many reports of people doing it (urban myth?). To me the attraction of the place is the full package, the food, the ambiance etc etc.
