Pentecost Monday

We are going to Paris for an extended weekend during Pentecost.
I had my food itinerary completely ready when I learned that on Pentecost Monday some restaurants which are usally open on Monday will be closed. In our case this was La Regalade St. Honrore which I shifted to Friday dinner instead.
Now I would like your thoughts about lunch on Pentecost Monday, please!
Our itinerary so far:
Friday dinner: La Regalade St. Honore
Saturday lunch: Le Galopin
Saturday dinner: Le Gaigne
Sunday lunch: picnic (weather permitting) or light bite in the Marais
Sunday evening: Chatomat
Monday lunch:???????
We have checked our list of places to go and came up with the following options, which would all somehow fit in our culture/walking itinerary for Monday:
Mini palais (Attracted to the beautiful terrace if the weather is fine)
Axuria (Basque and Fish)
What would you recommend?What would the best addition to our list? Any thoughts?
I know that usually for Monday you will be recommended Saturne and Neva on this board.
We are not particulary attracted by Saturne, which gets quite mixed reviews lately, and we already have with Le Galopin and Chatomat young chefs on our list who do modern French cuisine with a bit of an experimental twist (At least that what I hope for.....)
All we have heard about Neva sounds great and it is absolutely on our to do list for a future visit to Paris but this time its location does just not really fit in our plans.
Thank You everybody
