Making Paris restaurant reservations...

waldy | Apr 11, 2002 04:38 PM

I have a terrible fear of calling Parisian restaurants to make reservations, perhaps due to all I've heard about Parisian hatred of "ugly Americans!" To top it all off, I speak no French whatsoever (I can squeeze out a probably-mispronounced "parlez vous anglais?"). Are my fears unfounded? Will most restaurants have someone who can speak with me? Will my chances of getting into a hotspot be reduced because I am an American?

Thank you in advance for helping to alleviate (or increase) my anxieties.
