I have been lurking here for weeks, gathering info for our Christmas week trip. We have ballet tickets for December 31, and have decided to take the advice of most and do a post-theatre feast in our Marais apartment. So now I'm thinking about a lovely big, leisurely lunch that day. Will that be possible? Or will most good places be closed as they prepare for the orgy later that night? We like classic, well-prepared French food - aren't particularly interested in cutting edge, "revelatory" cuisine. Thank you!
