Paris Restaurants during the Holidays
The vast majority of restaurants in Our Guide to Paris will close during the week between Christmas and the New Year. Because their schedules vary and are rarely posted online, we’ve tracked down our favorite restaurants to ask when they’ll be open and to sort out any special holiday meals they might be planning.
