My husband and I will be in Paris from Dec 30-Jan 6 2007/08 and were looking for a recommendation for New Years Eve. We would like something near our hotel (Hilton Arc de Triomphe) and fairly close to the Champs Elysees so we can join the crowds after dinner. Good food is a must. Places we have enjoyed in Paris before are Aux Lyonnais and Le Bastide Odeon. We don't enjoy really stuffy places like Alain Ducasse and Laurent. Someplace serving lots of chilled seafood would be really great! I understand we need to make reservations very early as thigns book up quickly, so I'd love to hear from anyone who has been to Paris at this time and has advice to offer. Thanks!
