Hi all,

I’m wondering if anyone has any views on this set of Paris choices. I’m pretty set on what I’ve reserved, but pretty open on the rest – despite the apparent but false precision on the tiers. I’m more into classical choices, but I’m also going to be in the 11th and want to explore things I haven’t before – but still prefer classic to offal or too experimental. Also, I’m single, so I like a few places with no reservations bars (and have noted a few where I suspect that is true) and places where I can see the kitchen. I have 5 or so more restos to add, in addition to the two I’ve reserved. Obviously, tho, I’m happy to reserve too.

Are any of these single unfriendly? Are there any good/great places where one can just show up and hope for a great meal at the bar? (like Frontera at Chicago)

Is Lazare still possibly rude? I’ve read the main thread on this, and reports are mixed. But I’m pretty sure I’m not as handsome as some of those reporting ; )

BTW, for info: I’ve clicked on Septime’s online reservation system within seconds of when a new day opens and no luck.

Thank you for all your help over the years and for comments here as well.
