Early Dinner near Gare du Nord on Sunday (Valentine's Day)

Good point, maybe we will try to go for a 6:00 dinner without a reservation. Any idea what the dress code is? We were hoping to go someplace that isn't too formal, as we will have our bags for the train.

Early Dinner near Gare du Nord on Sunday (Valentine's Day)

My boyfriend and I will be in Paris this weekend to celebrate Valentine's Day and our anniversary, and we are having our main celebratory/romantic dinner on Sat the 13th. Our Eurostar train from Paris to London departs at 8:15 pm on Sunday the 14th, which makes dinner very difficult for that night. We are thinking that, to be safe, we should have dinner around 5:30 or 6:00 near Gare du Nord, but it is hard to find restaurants open on Sundays that early. I quickly checked Terminus Nord online, but because Sunday is Valentine's Day, I was unable to see if there is availability for a 6:30 seating. Can anyone recommend a good place to have an early dinner near Gare du Nord that will be open on Sunday? It doesn't need to be fancy b/c our fancy dinner will be on Sat, but something authentic would be nice. Thanks!

La Truffiere in Paris (or other romantic restaurants)

Hi, I recently made a reservation at La Truffiere for a trip to Paris next month with my boyfriend for Valentine's Weekend and our anniversary. We were looking for a really romantic restaurant that is sort of a hidden gem type place. Quiet, cozy, and romantic spot with great food, but without the over-the-top elegance and formality of some of the other notoriously romantic restaurants. Price isn't too much of an issue, but I'm still curious exactly how expensive a place like Truffiere is. I couldn't get any information on the website. Could someone give an approximation of what dinner there would cost per person without drinks? We are actually having our dinner the night before Valentine's Day, so it would most likely be the normal menu and not the Valentine's Day menu. Also, what is the dress code?

In the alternative, does anyone know if any other good restaurants for the ambiance we are seeking? Thanks in advance.

Sushi restaurants serving monkfish liver

Thanks! Yeah, I figured all the super expensive sushi places like Yasuda would have it but was hoping the more mediocre-priced places have it to. Anyone know if Tomoe has it? It's not on the online menu but I know at some places they don't have monkfish liver on the menu but serve it if you ask for it.

Sushi restaurants serving monkfish liver

Does anyone know which sushi restaurants in manhattan serve monkfish liver? This is my favorite thing to eat at sushi restaurants, but I've only had it in L.A. and am having trouble find places in NYC. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
