Solo lunch in or near 6e + Inexpensive Dinner

I love Chez L'Ami and have wanted to try Pottoka. Not familiar with Les Climats. Thanks for all the great ideas!

I've been eyeing Semilla for a while. If I don't get there for lunch, may try for dinner. Thanks!

Solo lunch in or near 6e + Inexpensive Dinner

Thanks, JOhn. L'Huitrerie Regis has been on my list the past 2 trips and somehow I've never gotten there. It's a great idea. I've also been intrigued by Ze Kitchen, so I'll look into that again. Have not heard about Mangetout, but will investigate!

And rest assured everyone, that I will have some other good meals beyond the 6e later in my trip! Big group dinner (suggested by this board I think) at Maceo. Smaller group dinner at Pirouette. And other dinners (hopefully) at Les Papilles, Verjus and maybe Le Severo.

I need to stay in 6e because I have a friend arriving from the airport. If I add in travel, I won't have time for lunch at all.

Thanks for these suggestions. I think I have been to Brasserie Lipp, but do not know of the others.

Solo lunch in or near 6e + Inexpensive Dinner

Hi all,

I am looking for some suggestions for 2 meals in Paris:

1) a solo lunch in the 6e, or within walking distance. I will be in Paris for a week, but I won't have "full control" of my other meals so would like this one to be a great one. Not fancy/stuffy, but fabulous! Willing to splurge a little, but would still like to keep it under 70 or 80 Euro. I was hoping to try Septime (too far given some time constraints this day) or Yamtcha (closed).

2) an inexpensive dinner for 2...could be anywhere that we could take the Metro form the 6e...preferably under 35-40 Euro per person. We are planning one night at Les Papilles, so we just need a second night. Would be nice if it was in a fun/interesting neighborhood to walk around

My tastes are pretty varied -- on prior trips I have loved Le Comptoir, L'Astrance, Le Severo, Cafe Constant and Pirouette, among others.

Thanks in advance. This board has given me some great ideas in the past!

Group dinners in Paris

Budget not 100% set yet, but it's reasonable. I guess I'd like to see if we can find something great for 100 Euro or less pp (without wine). I certainly have had great dinners for smaller groups there for less.

Group dinners in Paris

Hi all,

I have 2 dinners to plan in Paris for a group of executives from several different countries (mix of Europe and US). One is for about 25 people, the other for 15 people. Not too fancy or crazy expensive... definitely want great food and a sophisticated, but fun atmosphere. More modern cuisine...nothing too heavy or old fashioned. Centrally located too. Thanks in advance!

Cochon Butcher

Ah, I understand now! I'll definitely take my chances then. (and likely get the roast beef...totally up my alley!) Thanks

I am hoping to eat there rather than take out. Am I being unrealistic?!

Cochon Butcher

Hi New Orleans Chowhounds.

I'm going to be in New Orleans the last week of December and want to go with my 14-year old son to Cochon Butcher. Any strategies for getting in lunch-time on a Fri/Sat/Sun? If I don't get there until 12:30 or 1, will the wait time be unbearable?

Also, what are the foods I shouldn't miss?

Thanks!

Waiting times for Le Comptoir Pierre Sang on a Sat night

Thanks Busk. I thought I had checked on if they would be open. But no worries, I just made a reservation at Terroir Parisien that night.

Boredough: thanks! I did realize that after I contacted a couple of places.

Waiting times for Le Comptoir Pierre Sang on a Sat night

Thanks Phil and Parnassian, this is helpful I will indeed avoid the 6th. I've tried many, many other places already and either they were closed or I could not get a reservation. Still trying a few more, but planning to keep Pierre Sang in mind as my 'back up".

Waiting times for Le Comptoir Pierre Sang on a Sat night

We are thinking of going to either Le Comptoir (went a couple of years ago and loved) or Pierre Sang (looks amazing) on Saturday, December 30th. Suggestions for each on how early we need to arrive to avoid an extremely long wait? Thanks.

Need 1 More Paris Dinner Place...Modern French

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

Need 1 More Paris Dinner Place...Modern French

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!

Totally understand, John. Although I quite like it -- I do a lot of bar dining in some finer restaurants in NYC.

Sit-down cheese lunch

will definitely look into Chez Virginie. Thanks!

Marais lunch spots

I"m assuming it will NOT be warm. Although last time I was in Paris was in March a couple years back and it was in the 60s and sunny all week, so you never know!

Sit-down cheese lunch

I am wondering if anyone can recommend a great cheese shop with some seating for lunch? On our last trip, we discovered (and loved) Fromagerie 31, which had some seating. But when the weather is good, I typically will take my cheese to go for an outdoor picnic. I suspect we won't be able to do this at the end of December! Looking for super casual -- just a great cheese shop with a few tables. We will be staying near Place Vendome, but it does not have to be in our neighborhood.

Thank you.

Thanks, John. So I'm thinking for our one "nicer" meal I should perhaps stick with L'Atelier du Joel Robechon -- we have a lunch reservation there.

Marais lunch spots

Thanks all. I'll look these up for sure. Can I plan to be spontaneous (or sort of, with my list in hand)? Or do I need to make a reservation for lunch on a weekday?

Thanks Ptipois and pammi. I think I'll consider it for lunch instead of dinner.

Marais lunch spots

We will be in Paris the week after next and would like any recommendations for casual lunch spots in the Marais area. I read about a couple of places that sound good (Tartes Kluger, Usagi). Would it be too cold to eat at one of the places at Marche des Enfants Rouges?

Thanks.
