Wow, I have never had so much difficulty with finding appropriate restaurants in Paris! The attractive places seem to be either closed for the holiday, under scrutiny for being too popular, or taken over by new management which has destroyed the restaurant's cache and dining pleasure.
Our first night I booked D' Chez Eux which I have since learned has new owners. Sophie, an erudite contributor to this post, disliked it with a passion! Where else to eat for Christmas Day
I was going to book Il Vino d' Enrico Bernardo in the 7th for the 26th because it sounded so darn unique. Any ideas?
We are going to Le Paris at the Lutetia as we have fond memories and became engaged here years ago.
I have reservations at L'Angle du Faubourg because many of you wrote about this restaurant with a glowing analysis and they seem to relate to patrons with some warmth.
For the rest of my choices, and really I have no parameters other then good food and a Parisian experience. I have in mind the following:
Restaurant du Marche
La Fourchette de Printemps
We truly do need assistance since making a wrong choice for a meal can be a devastating experience in Paris when it is cold and freezing outside. We aren't as hearty as we used to be. New Year's Eve we plan to attend a concert at Eglise St-Germain des-Pres and eat and drink in the apartment we have rented in the 6th. Thank you so much for any aid and recommendations. Salut!
