Thanks so much for your report. I'll be in Paris in March and am staying in the 11th. Your info was very helpful and I've made a note of all your restaurants and Bus 96!

Your trip report and photos are wonderful! I especially love the candid shots of people in Paris. Do you have any tips on taking such photos?

There are a few! At Parmentier metro stop there is a great place for drinks and food called L'Autre Cafe http://www.lautrecafe.com/

Also this place gets rave reviews, we are eating here in Nov when we go again http://www.restaurant-astier.com/en/

Hope this gets you started!

So glad this resurfaced, partly because it's so fun, and partly because we plan to stay nearby ~ the same time this year. If anything, it's better on rereading.

I didn't realize the 23rd of Dec through the 2nd of January would be high tourist tide until I saw the dates of our trip coincide with Highest Rent for Paris apartments. I feel better forewarned now, and will plan on wearing earplugs to bed New Year's Eve.

Good to learn that street markets keep buzzing beautifully in winter. I've lifted other notes from this worthy thread. Thank you again.

Thanks for the recommendations. Perhaps you'll post others when you go in Nov.

Yestravel...we already have a few reservations.

After all the good reviews here we have booked a dinner at Reed.

And we always walk by this place and it gets good reviews as well so we are eating here on the Friday night we arrive: http://www.restaurant-astier.com/

Will let you know our thoughts when we return!

Astier is where I had one of the best meals of my life (many years ago). I'm afraid to go back since I know it can't be topped, lol. Lapin a la moutarde. So good. Great cheese cart, too (at least way back when).

I'll be eager to hear about your experiences, jamikins (not to mention the rest of your report). Enjoy!

Hey yestravel - as ready as we can be! I do feel like I'm playing "beat the clock" today. I mean, we KNOW we will lose power...but when...? Stay safe.
