Hi, we arrive in Paris at 8:30AM on May 1, which is Labor Day in Europe. We are staying in an apartment in the 1st not too far away from the Louvre, about a block from the Monoprix.
We know that most restaurant and shops are shuttered closed that day, partly because of the labor demonstrations, which begin in Tuilleries and the Garnier area.
Is there anyone that knows of any casual bistros that would be open on May 1 for an early dinner?
We have heard that Café Marly is open that day, but we are looking for something a bit more casual.
How about a small shop where we could pick up some milk, juice, bread, yogurt on May 1 close to our apartment.
. Monoprix is closed.
Thanks in advance for your help.
