My husband and I arriving in Paris early October. Thanks to this board, and many previous trips, we have all evening meals planned and reserved. Our problem is that upon arrival we depart the plane drugged and stupid. This picture does not get prettier the rest of the day regardless of naps, walks etc, etc. Our first evening meal in a nice restaurant or bistro has, in the past, been wasted on us. The next day we are fine and good to go but that first night is sad. I would love a few recommendations on a good and lively cafe where we can have a nice bottle of wine and a solid French meal - within a 10 to 15 minute walk of Ile Saint Louis on either side of the river. Many thanks.
