Need 1 More Paris Dinner Place...Modern French

debra1234 Dec 19, 2012 08:58 PM

Hi everyone. So I started out with a too-long list of restaurants for our trip to Paris next week and have now run out of options! Like some of you warned, a fair number of places were closed, and a few we could not get reservations. I'm looking for one last spot, preferably Modern French as I think that is a gap in my current list, for Saturday night, 30 December. Not too pricey and not too stuffy.

Here's what we have so far:

Wed -- Lunch, Garnier; Dinner, PIroutte
Thurs -- Lunch TBD in Upper Marais; dinner Bistro Paul Bert
Fri -- Lunch TBD (cheese likely); dinner Chez Dumonet
Sat -- Lunch (early) at L'Atelier du Joel Robechon

Places that are closed that week or weekend: Septimes, Les Papilles, Frenchie, Table d'Eugene, Roseval, Ze Kitchen, L'Ami Jean; Le Severo

Thanks for any ideas!

    Well, I'm not sure if Maceo (15 rue des Petits Champs, 1er) is open, but if they are, it fits your requirements to a T. Modern French, delicious, reasonably priced and not at all stuffy. Here's a link to their web site. http://www.maceorestaurant.com/Maceo_...

      Consider Les Jalles, they normally are open every day.

        Thanks. Maceo is unfortunately closed. I will look into Les Jalles as I'm not familiar with it.

          Great place run by the ladies - Delphine Alcover and Magalie Marian - of the Bistro Volnay.
