My French is admittedly bad, but passable, and so far I've been able to make reservations in French at most restaurants I want to go to in December in Paris. (Except Frenchie, which has this outgoing message that I can't quite understand.)
I'm struggling with Les Papilles. I've tried three times now, and each time a very nice man tells me to call back in the morning at 9:00 am when there is someone who speaks English. The only problem is that it's midnight in Los Angeles (where I live) and I don't have access to a land line at the time, and my calling card does not work on my cell phone.
So, if you are fluent in French (or simply much better in French than I am) and you are game to make me a reservation, please let me know and we can exchange e-mails and I'll send you pertinent information including calling card information.
