Curfew is on. Starting from October 17, Parisians and tourists, as well as Île-de-France inhabitants will have to be at home at max. 9 p.m. So, if you want to keep on enjoying good food for the next 4 weeks – the minimal curfew-period decreed by the French government – you will have to go and dine early.
It is perfect since many tables in Paris open to foodies from 6 p.m., and even before! You will have plenty of time to be blown away with your family or friends (up to 6 patrons per table, of course!) before you nicely get back home before 9 p.m. to avoid getting fined!
Here are the best restaurants to dine early and make it back home before 9 p.m.:
