What people are saying
Hipsters in Paris (2014) “The real showstoppers come from the the grill – rump, sirloin, chateaubriand, ribsteak, côte de bœuf, all sourced from Normandy – served with potatoes three hundred different ways and plump pots of sauce béarnaise.”
Alexander Lobrano (2009) “… this delightful place really is worth the cab fare for diehard carnivores.”

Not a dumb question at all! It’s less than 5 minutes walking to the Philharmonie to the restaurant, but before the last concert there it took me at least 20 minutes to get through the queue to check tickets and move through the lobby, so you’d need to plan to be done with dinner 30 minutes before the show. So can you eat within a 60 minute timeframe at LBC? Probably. If I were you, I’d probably skip dessert and ask for the bill well before you really need it. But otherwise, they won’t be busy at 7pm. On the flip side, they’ll be open late and it might be more fun for you to have a snack before the concert and then really take your time at dinner. In any case, bon concert and bon appétit!
Sorry for the maybe dumb question, but we have tickets to the Philharmonie at 20h30 and want to eat at Au Bœuf Couronée right down the street. Is a 19h00 table safe for dinner there or cutting it too close? We would rather eat after the concert than rush through dinner but if we would have enough time eating earlier would be preferable.
