Thanks to everyone for all the Paris help and suggestions I received (see "wine in Paris"). Now I have another question:
We aren't planning on eating in any of the top Paris restaurants, but we would like to consider some of the more popular dining choices. My questions are about reservations.
Can we make them just a day or two ahead? The same day? We will be in Paris April 7-14, and hope to eat well, but not at the top of the scale.
Oh, one more question: Does anyone have a recommendation for their favorite spot to order (pardon my French) Plats du Fruits de Mer? I probably have that all wrong, but you know what I mean: that nice dome of ice covered with clams, snails, oysters, etc. My husband has never seen this and is anxious to order it.
