Well they all look GREAT...! The first looks warm and inviting. The second one has risotto with pear and gorgonzola that looks so tempting! And the third has an interesting ravioli with creamed truffled ricotta.... yum!

I'm good with any that anyone chooses!

Agree they all look good. I think the second one (Salento) sounds the best for me, but really I'm good with any of them.

Thanks PW for making the reservation.

I will be alone and will be happy with either restaurant.

I should mention that I will have flown in that morning and might not be at my best, so I will apologize for any yawns in advance. I assure you they will not be a result of the company! I imagine I will have a light meal as well given the situation.

Looking forward to seeing everyone. Just let me know which restaurant you choose.

Update: Pariswat's travel plans have changed and he will not be able to join us.

If everyone else is still up for it, we can keep the plans as they were. PW said he made the reservations, but I have no idea under what name.

Would it mess up anyone's plans if we moved the time up to 19h00 or 19h30? If 20h00 is the only time that works for everyone else, I'll leave it at that.

If anyone else would like to join us, please post and I can update the reservation.

I believe Pariswat said he would make the reservation under the name Fodors.

I would be fine with an earlier start time. I fade rapidly on arrival day!

Thanks UNCalum for letting me know. I am not a late bird in the best of circumstances, so I can relate.

Looking back at the previous posts, I see he did say the reservation would be under the name Fodor's. And, he did tell me in an email. I've been crazy busy since arriving Monday afternoon, so my attention span has suffered.

So once swandav confirms an earlier time is okay and fuzz confirms, I'll call the restaurant and change the number of people to 4 and the time to 19h00.

19h is okay for me. I'm an early bird too. Maybe too early.

Wish the best for your Paris exploring, 1994.

Thank you Fury. I am obviously not paying attention here; mixing up Fuzz and Fury.

I've been crazy busy with scheduling inspectors/painters in to take care of damage caused by a broken washing machine in the upstairs apartment (flooding through ceiling of daughter's apartment). Continuous emails with the landlord. In addition to arrangements to replace a fridge that isn't working right.

Sorry..

I'm glad 19h00 is good for you Fury. I hope it will be okay with Swandav.

Hallo! I'm here! I'm sorry to be so late posting to this, but Tuesday may not work for me either.

If I do manage to be there, yes, 19.00 is better for me than 20.00. Hope you don't have problems changing the reservation.

But I may not actually make it...

Since pw cannot make it, would anyone prefer to meet waaay earlier... like around 16.00 or 17.00 for a glass of wine? I'm just not certain that I can be there that night.

So sorry!

Earlier for drinks is fine for me. We don't have to do dinner. I'm very flexible.

Not sure about Fury. Also not sure what time UNCalum arrives.

What does everyone say? If it is just drinks, I can cancel the dinner reservation and we'd just have to decide where we'd like to meet for drinks.

Ok! I'll be following!

1994 -- thanks for starting this and for working to accommodate everyone!

I just did a web search and found a cafe/bar in the same neighborhood, should folks want to meet earlier --

www.littlecafeparis.fr

Hopefully someone will have a favorite little bar or cafe, if folks do want to meet earlier. But if not, this would be an option.
