I DVR'd the rerun of this show and once I was able freeze the screen I realized that the restaurant was Le Train Bleu. We had lunch there a few years ago -- should have immediately recognized it. Thought I'd answer my own question in case anyone else was wondering.

I thought it was going to be closed now. I happened to be in the Gare de Lyon a few days ago and seeing the restaurant open, I stopped by to check their hours of operation. No mention of the closure. I next checked their website and saw no notice of the closure there either.

Either they are now keeping the closure a secret or they have delayed it.

From the Website:

"Our establishment will be closed exceptionally for renovation works this summer from June 29th to September 15th 2014"

Emmie119 - Not till October; will report on it. Based on all the great info we got when I was trying to decide on staying in the area near Invalides we're going to try using the bus system -- on previous trips we've either used the Metro or walked.

Which restaurant? The one at the beginning when they are sitting outside and you can see the Eiffel Tower? I was wondering about that one.

I've been to Le Train Bleu a couple of times years ago but just to look inside when I had a train to catch.

We were at "Le Train Bleu" a few days ago and yes they are closing on the 29th.
We had been there before and wanted to take our GD to that fabulous room.

One thing I must mention is that the weather was hot and it was extremely hot in the restaurant. It is a very old building after all. It does look a bit tired and in need of a renovation.

It reopens on Sept 15th.
