Eiffel Sparkle

Despite having a full eating itinerary for our week in Paris (examples here and here), there were plenty of restaurants we missed.

Here are the restaurants on my short list for my next trip – all were recommended by foodie friends and discussed on food blogs/message boards:

  • Cafe Constant and/or Les Cocottes are owned by the same chef and are almost next door to each other. Neither take reservations, so we planned to go early (6/6:30ish) or late (9/9:30ish). Because the restaurants are near the Eiffel, we thought to time dinner to see the tower sparkle (happens for 5 minutes every hour on the hour). Alas, the best laid plans of mice and men …
  • Comptoir duRelais near Odeon metro stop
  • Le Chateaubriand near Goncourt metro. Has prix fixe menu and there’s a 2nd seating that doesn’t requires reservations (arrive ~8:45/9pm).

Have you been to any of these or have other suggestions to add to the list?
