I have somewhat unexpected guests coming to visit for one night only on Tuesday -- an older couple who have literally had everything in the world of food -- anywhere important in New York, Paris, London, LA, SF, etc. They would like something relatively low-key, maybe simply a bistro. They'll stay with me near Square Saint-Louis, so somewhere nearby would be ideal.
I thought of L'express of course, but I don't want them to feel rushed, and L'express can at times be a bit brusque with getting multiple seatings into tables, although I admit I've never been on a Tuesday. Perhaps Laloux or somewhere else nearby like La Fabrique? Obviously we want to avoid the Prince-Arthur tourists.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated !
