When do restaurants close in late July for summer break?

psaseattle Dec 8, 2011 05:59 AM

We will be in Paris next July as late as July 19 and I know that some of the restaurants we want to try may close in the later part of July & all of August. Can you please tell me when these closings start happening in July? Will we be affected if we're there July 14-19 or is that still early enough in the month for it to be a non-issue? Thanks for your advice!

    As Nancy points out, restos close at different times, usually in August. Around July 14, also expect a lot of closings for Bastille Day.
    Therefore largely a non-issue.

      It depends on the restaurant. Generally, though, restaurants will remain open during your stay. Nevertheless, I find that the city seems to become much more touristy and much less local after Bastille Day, on the 14th.
