Paris this weekend - no reservations

magfitz | Sep 1, 2011 06:53 AM

I am meeting my husband in Paris tomorrow for the weekend. Last minute trip. Never been to Paris before. I have been looking on the board for restaurant recommendations. However, seeing as it is last minute, we do not have any reservations. I realize that there are many people who go to Paris and plan well in advance. A few posts I saw were for restaurant itineraries 1-2 months in advance of the trip and reservations were already being booked. What are my options like in Paris without reservations? Should we try with 1-2 days notice? Or just look to go to casual places? Do more popular or higher end restaurants have tables set aside for walk-ins? I am from NYC and have a general understanding of what my options are here regarding advance reservations, which places accomodate walk-ins. I was just looking for an idea of what my dining experience can be in Paris at this point.
