Paris Restaurants That Are Good for Groups

In Paris, where restaurants are tiny and can sometimes contain only a handful of tables, dining en masse requires a certain level of strategy. If you’re trying to book dinner for a large group (more than six people) or are planning a special event, we’ve found a selection of restaurants that can welcome a crowd. Here’s our selection of Paris restaurants that are good for groups.
