Business as usual on The 15th..??

Hi Houndies.....

At long last nearing the commencement of our first Non-winter sojourn in France. Have one night in Paris at the beginning ( and then at the end) with 2 weeks in a Burgundy farmhouse in between. Very excited to finally not have to think about snow and ice while planning repas....

Mon question: do you think biz will be usual on Friday the 15th, or might some folks close up for le long Holiday Weekend??

Merci- and comme toujours, I promise to post.

P.S. FYI - iPad really wanted to change toujours to "glum IRS"..... how American....

      Between Autun and Beaune, not far from Arnay LeDuc.... Don't even know WHAT to eat in Burgundy en ete, but trusting I'll figure it out...

        Try the patron saint of ferme-auberges: Ferme de la Ruchotte, not far from you. But it is a functioning farm and operates a restaurant for only a couple of meals a week.

    2. In keeping with French tradition, (any excuse for a Holiday) many businesses will close on 15 juillet this year!

        Merci Da and Parigi and Merci Menton - I'll step up my dinner search. Only have one dinner in Paris this trip, staying on the Ile St. Louis and not wanting too much of a shlep cause we'll be a bit jet-lagged, but also wanting to take in a bit of Paree... am thinking maybe La Gaigne (never been for dinner) Chez Denise (ditto)...
