Small Plates Recommendations??

zsmd01 Apr 28, 2012 03:56 PM

Will be in Paris next week with lunch at some very nice restaurants (Le Cinq, Pierre Gagnaire). My guess is that we won't be in the mood for a big dinner in the evening. Any suggestions for places to go for small plates to share? We'll be staying near the Arc de Triumphe, but are willing to hop on the Metro.

    Newly opened Semilla has very good small plates and is also open on Sunday. 54 Rue de Seine. There was no name of the place on the building. Two doors up from Cosi.

        DLL is absolutely great and it is open every day. The small plates aren't exactly small either.

          DLL, our fave, is closed Sunday.

            Was there yesterday and i thought the blackboard said 7 jours 7 - 12h a 23h. Did I misinterpret something?

              No, you must be right and I must be wrong referring to this:

                Jock is correct. We noticed that they were open today and went in to the bar mid-afternoon. The manager said that 2 weeks ago they started opening every day.

                  Ah, I was wondering about that cause they were closed on a Monday last month.

                  Does DLL serve until 11pm? Does Au Passage serve late too? I am looking for a relaxed place with good food and wine that will serve us after 10:30. We arrive at CDG (from AMS) at 8:30pm. Thinking that if all goes well, we could pop out for something to eat around 10:30. Or is my gluttony causing me to think irrationally?

                    I didn't get out of Le Chateaubriand last night before 2AM, but I have no idea what his rules are. Small plate...sorta...

                      In general, all ordering must be done before 10:30pm.

                        Running away with your gluttony remark (and gourmand also means greedy/ gluttonous in French), a traditional place for a late-night meal is Chez Denise (open until 5am) in Les Halles. Not a place that in any way fits into a thread headed "Small Plates", though. And not open on Sat & Sun.
