Paris Wine Bar Etiquette

lsinicki | Nov 12, 2009 12:02 PM

My husband, 16-year old daughter and I will be in Paris Thanksgiving week. We've selected nice restaurants for lunch and tons of pastry shops for afternoon snack. What we need now are fast, light dinners.

I figure that we can do falafel one night and Japanese noodles another night. My question is: are wine bars an option? I know that many serve excellent food. Can we go in and get a glass of wine and a snack--or share a single entre? Or is that frowned upon. If the wine bar serves complete dinners, do we need to make our intention to graze clear up front? Can a 16-year old sit at a bar in France, or do we need to sit at a table?
Many thanks,
