Post-wedding dinner: La Taverne, Le Comptoir?...and other suggestions

bbares81 | Sep 7, 2010 01:58 PM

We are getting married in France in front of just family (7 people total)...we are looking for a fun, but semi-dressy place that is not fussy or overly-expensive. I will not be the one paying so I don't want to steer us into an expensive will be flowing and we will be celebrating so I want to monitor the price up front.

It has been a long time since I have been to Paris....I do recall having a good meal near the opera at La Taverne....not sure if I stumbled into a tourist trap or not, but the escargot were very good.

Le Comptoir may be our Christmas dinner

I am from New Orleans and take food very seriously....prior to Bourdain making it impossible for me to get into Le Chateaubriand, Frenchie and Le Comptoir, I had circled those three along with finding good Laotian and Morrocan food and one good dinner place in Monmartre as a pre-lim gameplan for Paris. How early can I call for these places? Are there any tricks for landing a reservation...we are trying to fill a lunch and sunday/monday/tuesday dinners....I recognize that 7 people may make this reservation difficult to get.

Thank You for the help...
