need quick suggestion: dining 'near' the louvre
we are meeting our niece at the pyramid on monday in the late afternoon and have about 4 hours with her. we'd like to take her for dinner even tho it will probably be early by paris standards...so thinking cafe or brasserie. i was think near the louvre (since we have to drop her back at the pyramid) or i thought that ile st. louis would be utterly doable. suggestions that would work for the adults as well as the temporarily-adopted teenager?
have just been told that said 17 year old is a vegetarian - we are not. wondering about the chatelet area which is close enough by.
Au Gourmand, rue Molière, is a good restaurant, will be open monday for dinner (the most strigent condition here), speaks English, has a pretty good vegetarian menu, not even expensive.
Other good options, in my opinion, include Japanese eateries on rue Sainte-Anne and around (including Richelieu)
Macéo is also an option, also excellent vegetarian menu, also open, also not a primarily vegetarian restaurant.
