I am taking my 14 year old niece to Paris for her birthday in October. She's been once, she lives in Germany and visited for 24 hours on her way somewhere else. Anyway, she and my sister (who also lives in Germany but has never been to Paris) are meeting me there for the turning 15 festivities. I have lots of ideas for other meals (we're staying in the 11th and I've already settled on West Country Girl for one meal because she loves crepes, and probably Porokhane because my sister will love it and it's real close to my apartment, and Jeanne B along with a trip to Sacre Coeur).
But...I am at a loss for the big night (it's a Sat). My sister is on a VERY limited budget so I am treating for most of the trip, meaning that as much as I would love to take her somewhere like Le Grand Vefour, it's not in the budget for me. I'm thinking of Chez Denise, do you think that they would make a fuss and bring her a cake with a candle? I'm thinking old-style bistro for this, does that make sense? She's fairly adventurous and not especially picky. Any and all suggestions welcomed. Thanks!
