My good friend really wants an afternoon tea instead of a bachelorette party and I have been tasked with organizing it for this Saturday (short notice). We (4 girls) will be going to Meurice for the tea at 3:30 pm this Saturday; however our day starts at 9:30 am to meet up for her fitting for her wedding dress. So, I would also like to find a nice place to have a light lunch since there is a bit of a gap before tea. As we will be a bit dressed up I don't want to walk that far and if at all possible I would like to avoid the metro.
So that leads to the additional criteria in my search. In addition to good food I would like:
1. The restaurant to have a nice (pretty, lux, intimate, etc.) atmosphere. Does not have to be all of that, but one or more would be nice. Just something not bar like or too casual
2. The location to be near Concorde, Louvre, Tuilleries, Madeleine or thereabouts. We are meeting at Concorde for her fitting and having tea at Meurice. Since we will be dressed up and avoiding the metro I would like something not too far away, but if it meets all other requirements, I can budge on this one.
3. This one should probably be further up. We are all unemployed students in Paris (i.e. not much money). Since we are already doing tea I would really like to keep the lunch budget under 20 euros per person not including wine. Also, we won’t be taking dessert.
Thanks so much for reading this and all comments are appreciated. I have been searching and can't seem to find anything that meets all of my criteria. If such a place exists in Paris, I figured this was the best place to ask.
