What’s Open in August?

Here’s our annual calendar of what’s open during the summer holiday, based on information that we’ve confirmed directly with Paris restaurants. We’ve organized the findings by arrondissement, so you can scroll to see the schedule of your favorite restaurant, and we’ve added color and descriptions to to let you know more about these restaurants at a glance.

The colors let you know about our preferences in the following way:

  • Dark green for our absolute favorites (run!)
  • Light green for restaurants we recommend (go)
  • Yellow for restaurants that are fine, but not among the best in their style (caution)

We’ve also included all of this information in calendar form, so you can look to see what’s open on a particular date. If you’re a regular Google calendar user, you can add/save this calendar to your phone in order to have easy access to this information on the go.
