Help with wallet-friendly restaurants for a group of 12 in August

stagething Oct 31, 2011 04:19 AM


I hate to be "that person" that asks for recommendations when traveling, since the boards cover this thread repeatedly. However, my situation is specific, in that I'll have a group of 12 for four nights in Paris, and will be covering the whole bill every night. Therefore, I'd like places that are typical French bistros and brasseries that are in the area of 35E per person.

I would really appreciate any recommendations that you could give.

    This place was open last August:


    I liked it very much.

      It's funny that you mention that. That's one of my favorite dinner spots in Paris.

      It is not that we don't want to help you, but his far in advance, not just we, but even the restaurateurs themselves don't know if they will be open.
      To give you an idea, I just tried to book a restaurant in Nice. The restaurant replied that it had not yet decided whether to stay open during the xmas-new year period. You are talking about 8 mohths after xmas-new year.

        That's a very good point that you raise. I'll revisit this question in the spring. Thank you!
