First, full disclosure... I met my fiance through Chowhound when I was looking for a dining companion on my solo trip last December. We shared a wonderful lunch at Spring and then, the following night, dinner at Chez l'Ami Jean. He lives in Seattle, I live in Washington, DC. We were engaged in Paris in May and will marry this December--in Paris of course:-) I went to Paris for food, music, art, and some Christmas spirit and I found a life partner!
But, this is about food, not about love, so here is my question: We have about 45 guests coming in for the wedding. I was hoping to get reservations so that my fiance and I could dine with new arrivals each night. The first night it would mean 10-12; the second night 14-16; the third night probably 20.
Will the charming restaurants I've learned about on these pages and have grown to know and love through my visits the past 5 Decembers be able to accommodate these numbers? I don't mind splitting people up into tables of 4, 6, 8 but I don't want to be in a back room...
Here's what I was thinking/wishing:
Wednesday (10-12): Les Papilles
Thursday (14-16): Mon Vieil Ami (after a concert at Sainte Chapelle)
Friday (20): Cafe Constant or Chez l'Ami Jean (after an evening visit to the Eiffel Tower)
Other ideas: Fish; Verjus (because of Seattle connection)
Do you think any of these will be possible? Or do the Hounds have any other suggestions for me? Guests are staying mostly in the 6th. Prefer walkable except the night we'll go to the Eiffel Tower and we can stay in the 7th.
Thanks for any thoughts, suggestions, ideas you have!
