I’ll be traveling in Paris over Easter break with my 15 year old and 20 year old sons. Any recommendations for special experiences or restaurants to go to for the holiday? We are trying to attend Mass as well, but have read that capacity is currently limited due to Covid restrictions.
There were for a long time restrictions on how many seats a church or temple or mosque could fill , but those restrictions have also been gone for a long time. It wouldn't surprise me however if some establishments have not remembered to update their web pages.
Following! I will also be in Paris on Easter Sunday with husband and 16 yo daughter. Trying to find somewhere special to dine that day.
The large brasseries should be open: La Coupole, Brasserie du Nord, La Rotonde, Bofinger, etc. These large rooms can be quite a scene
The chain restaurant, l'Entrecôte, is very popular. The website "the fork" will have listings.
Reserve in advance because Sunday lunch and dinner are very full in these places, Easter even mo so.
Le Train Bleu at Gare de Lyon for thé majestic setting and opulence. It’s upstairs in the train station, and once you ascend the stairs, you’ll feel like you are in another time. I’ve dined there alone, and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the leg of lamb. Le Train Bleu is a great place for a memorable occasion.
My favorite restaurant for Easter Lunch in Paris is at The Musee d’Orsay, in The Restaurant (not the Cafe Campana near the clock). They offer a prix fixe menu and an a la carte menu. A memorable meal in a beautiful Belle-Epoque style salon. Planning on a special lunch during a visit to the museum works well as it breaks up the museum visit.
Thanks for these recommendations! I found Le Train Bleu early in my Paris “research”, but then I forgot the name! And we definitely want to see the Musee d ‘ Orsay so that is great to know about The Restaurant.
