Hello, wondering if anyone can help
We will be arriving in Paris mid-afternoon this Sunday after a really tedious multi-continental cross-oceanic journey. There is every possibility we will check into our hotel near Denfert-Rochereau and sleep profoundly until Monday dawn, so we don't want to bother a restaurateur making a reservation we may not keep.
But: If we are awake we will want to eat, and we would like someplace near Denfert-Rochereau that is French kitchen, with no wait for a table, and that isn't abrasively raucous and -- need I say? -- spares us wretched food. French is our 3rd best language, and we will be jet-lagged. Forecast is for rain.
I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
Has anyone ever eaten at Rosebud? Somehow that sounds so easy but maybe it is simply a nuts idea.
Would any of these work?
Au Bon Coin (worried I'll end up in a queue)
Marty (worried food is terrible)
Le Bar a Huitres (worried it is tiny and loud)
Closerie des Lilas brasserie (hey, thought it might the counter-intuitive choice, never been)
A la Table d’ Eulalie
Dans les Landes
Guess the bottom line is if you found yourself in that neighborhood on a rainy cold Sunday night with an exhausted friend and no reservations, but the two of you hungry, where would you walk to for a simple meal that might even lift your spirits?
