Not that we could have done this any differently due a certain 14 year old's summer schedule but we just keep getting crushed at every corner on the august closures

I keep getting emails like this from my Concierge friend :

"Further to our last emails, we would like to inform you that both Le Voltaire and Pharamond will be closed the whole month of August."


"Further to your previous mails, we regret to inform you that:

Bistrot Paul Bert will be closed from July 27th to August 27th.
6 Paul Bert will be closed from August 3rd to 27th.
Severo will be closed from July 27th to August 25th.
Café des Musées will be closed for one week in August but they don’t know yet.
Pot O’Lait will be closed from August 1st to August 16th."

didn't understand the comment from another thread about it being too early to decide for august..............seems most places have their schedules set

anyway if we are looking for two dinners in the classic brasserie or bistro setting I have these options as of now:

Pamela Popo
Le Comptoir
Brasserie Thoumieux
Le Grand Colbert

If you had two nights which of the two would you chose (I think I know what the answer will be on the last option!) or do you have other options that are known for remaining open in the dog days of August?

as always
