I hesitate to ask a general question like this, but I'll be in Paris from Dec. 25-28. I'm staying near Lux. gardens and plan to spend most of my time walking (I'll trudge through rain if necessary!).
I'm looking for small restaurants for dinner -- and maybe lunch -- and am interested in prix fix menus. I've looked around on this board, and found some good recommendations already -- I will likely spend some time in the Marais around lunchtime, as well as making a trip to a market on Sun. morning for some items to take home; I'm also thinking I might go to Rest. Perraudin (reviewed on this board). I'll probably stay on left bank for dinner, but I'm willing to walk/metro out of immediate area of hotel.
I'm interested in what I think of as "homey" French food (I don't want to go to a fancy or formal rest.), and I'm also wondering about rest. being open on Christmas and Christmas night. I'm pretty adventurous; speak very little French but am happy to struggle through for a good meal.
Thanks for any advice you can give me --
