We will be in Paris from the 29th to the 4th, staying in an apartment in the Marais. Based on advice I have read on this board, we are going to avoid going out for dinner on New Year's but will cook at the apartment and wander up to the Champs Elysee after dinner. We would like to have a nice lunch that day - is that possible or will most places be shut down in preparation for the evening? Also, what about New Year's Day? Will many places be closed? Are there any recommendations for either lunch or dinner on New Year's? Thanks!
