Sunday "starred" prix fixe lunch?

This is my first post, but my husband and I are going to Paris at the end of May, and I have spent hours reading through the many unbelievably helpful posts on this site. I'm hoping that there will be someone who can help me with my newest dilemma! We will be there for 4 1/2 days over a weekend, and our plan was/is to do one major blow-out (Michelin) lunch, and spend the rest of our meals with all of the wonderful unstarred recommendations I have found here (Comptoir, Aux Lyonnais, Mon Vieil Ami, picnics, L'as du Falafel, etc.). We had FINALLY decided on Taillevant for lunch on Monday before leaving the next day, but apparantly it is closed for Whit Monday! I'm afraid that that is going to be the case for several other places, and have therefore decided to move our big lunch to Sunday instead. Of course this raises the question of which of the starred restaurants are open Sunday. And if I wasn't being difficult enough, I would also love to know which of those have worth-while/reasonable prix fixe lunches along the lines of Taillevant! In terms of taste-- food is the most important thing, but I guess it does not have to be ABSOLUTE perfection if the ambience is good enough to make up for it. Also, while I will go anywhere, hubby is less a fan of the more modern, cutting edge fare that it seems like we would find at Pierre Gagnaire and the like. Lastly, if anyone knows that Taillevant is the exception, and most places will not be closed on that Monday (Memorial day, US), that information would be very much appreciated too!!! Thanks in advance!
