We will be in Paris in January and really would like to have lunch at Pierre Sang Boyer on a Friday. I am a bit worried about their no reservation policy. Normally, I would not mind waiting outside on the sidewalk with an nice glass of white in the hand, but not in January....., at least not for 30 min or more.
I have read the best strategy is to be there at 12.00h sharp when they open but we find that a bit early for lunch. John Talbott wrote in his blog that there were empty seats again at 1.30h, this sounds much better.
Anybody been there recently for lunch? Still a long queue outside to get in or are things more relaxed nowadays for a weekday lunch? Is the 1.30h alternative worth taking the risk or do we really have to go for 12.00h?
Thanks for any advice!
