La Tour d'Argent-dinner jacket?

Does anyone know if they require a dinner jacket? I'm looking at their website and cannot find anything on what the attire must be.

We are meeting up with friends who will be there earlier in the week and I'm trying to find a restaurant in the 5th or 6th arr. I'm looking also at:
La Rotisserie d'en Face
Closerie des Lilas
Jacques Cagna
Chez Gramond
La Restaurant d'Helene

Any thoughts?

As a segway...the same people who own TD also own Rotisserie du Beaujolais and La Guirlande de Julie

If you go to their web site and select "Petites Maisons" you'll get more info.

I've eaten at RdB. Not too fancy (but "proper"), mostly locals, house specialty is roast chicken. I've read reviews, some love it, some were tepid. I liked it, but this was a couple of years ago.

There are few restaurants, even in Paris, that require a dinner jacket these days. The only one I know of is Maxim's, and that's only one night of the week.

Too bad--my husband loves to wear his dinner jacket; he says it's the most comfortable thing he owns.

Is this a language thing? Do you actually mean a formal dinner jacket as in one with tuxedo style lapels, etc? Or do you just mean a sport coat or suit coat? I'd be surprised if on any given night you'd see any of the former.

By the way, I know Tour d'Argent was closed in July when we were there -- from below it looked like they were totally gutting the place -- windows were even removed. Not sure what other changes they had in store.

Hi t,

You are aware that TdA is now a 1* with 3* prices?

Do you mean a tux?

When you say "dinner jacket" I assume you mean a tuxedo - and I'm not aware of any restaurant that requires a tuxedo.

If you mean simply a suit or a sports jacket with nice slacks - I would assume that to be a requirement at any truly upscale restaurant.
