Paris, Easter Monday, late night food in the 11th
We're arriving in Paris on the evening of Easter Monday at around 10:30pm. We're staying on Rue Moreau, in the 11th. between metros Bastille and Ledru Rollin. Do any of you know this area well? We were hoping to have a good bistro meal and wine somewhere nearby. But anywhere serving decent food late on an Easter Monday would be appreciated.
I considered A la biche au bois -- would this be the best choice?
Monday's a tricky as lots of places close, Easter Monday even worse as it is a holiday and many of those that do open will close, and 10:30 is very late and many places will be closeing or have taken last orders. Best advice is to eat on the way to Paris.
I agree with PhilD.
Monday is already be traditionally the weekday for restaurant closing. Plus Easter Monday. Plus your very late arrival (last service, if any resto is open, would be 10pm). Never mind "good bistro meal". Even finding a bad bistro, any bistro, is not likely. Are you flying in from somewhere? Wouldn't the plane be serving meals? Or are you driving? If so, you best bet is to dine on the way.
Try and check Chez Denise in the first arrondisement, do not know if open on Easter Monday, but if so serve right through the night, generally open Mondays. l really do not like ALBA Bois, very, very heavy fare.
