Hi Chowhounds. I'm a newbie to this site and already I'm needing your help.
My husband and I were married in Paris and next June celebrate our 30th anniversary with a return to to that lovely city. We've done a lot of travel in the intervening years but have not been back to Paris. We would like to go somewhere special but not too overblown (we'd prefer not to have to sell our first born to pay for dinner), however our anniversary falls on a Sunday which means 80 percent of establishments will be closed.
We are staying in st germain des pres but don't mind travelling on the metro to go elsewhere. My French is rusty to almost non-existent but am willing to put in the practice. I suppose by that comment I mean I wouldn't want to go anywhere where they were impatient and horrid, yet at the same time don't want to go to a "tourist trap". Please any suggestions? By the way happy to do lunch. Look forward to your replies.
