I think I've finally made my final list for our April 2008 trip. A little over 3 months to go! I know I've chosen places that need reservations, but I was wondering if you could help me figure out how soon I need to call/email to make sure I get in. I'm pretty set on these places so I'd like to try my best.
Which ones can be done via email or internet, and which ones need to be called? I've found web links for reserving Pierre Gagnaire and Taillevent (the restaurant website and bestrestaurantsparis.com), Aux Lyonnais (lafourchette.com and restaurant website), Mon Vieil Ami, and Les Bouquinistes (both have websites). I've heard stories of the internet being not the best method and people not getting confirmations, but I'm afraid if I call to reserve, my elementary French will prevent me from reserving successfully.
Chez L'Ami Jean
Mon Vieil Ami
Le P'tit Troquet
You'll also be happy to know that 4 of the restaurants have been cut for our 7 day trip so we don't "waddle home" (as some put it to me before).
