Dinner near Musee d'Orsay

nestwise | Feb 2, 200802:20 PM

I'm looking for a place to have dinner with my 3 kids ages 16-22, after visiting the Musee d'Orsay on a Thursday evening. The young people speak no French (I speak some), and while they are often willing to try new things when traveling, it is a little outside their comfort zone to have me tell them "This one is beef, this is tuna, this is another fish, all have sauces but I don't know exactly what they are", and have no other information from which to make a decision. As one of them says, "I am fine with having sauce on my steak but I don't want snails crawling all over it." I think he was kidding....

In any event, we want someplace a short walk from the museum, and I am looking at Le Cinq Mars and Le Bistrot de Paris and wondering what the likelihood is of finding menus there translated into English, or wait staff fluent enough to be able to explain better than I can about the menu if it is in French only. I am completely open to other suggestions, so long as they are reasonable walking distance; for reasons too boring to explain, we hope to avoid metro/taxi that particular evening. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
