I'm headed to Paris at the end of August (20-24). As you know...there are many closures in August. I found a great list of August closures hosted on Paris By Mouth but of course it doesn't list every closure. My hope was to find 4-6 fantastic restaurants/wine bars for lunch/dinner that are open and go a little crazy. I'm leaning towards new, less Michelin starred type places. I was curious if anyone else had any ideas. Also, as an aside, many of these restaurants do not have emails listed (just phone numbers) My French is good enough to send an email request but on the phone...not so much. I'm renting an apartment...so, I don't have a concierge to make these calls.
Here are some that sound great and I think are open while I'm there (feel free to tear this list apart or add some)...
Le Mary Celeste
Restaurant Les Déserteurs
Restaurant Pierre Sang
Restaurant David Toutain
Aux Deux Amis
