Summer Dining in Paris...Lots of Luck!

Want to eat in Paris in August or late July? Try again mon ami...the city is closed.  Okay, overstatement? Maybe.  Here's an online list of which handful of restaurants are open when:

We had a lovely dinner at Relais de Comptoir on August 14...the day before the day on which everyplace in France is closed. No reservations and a pretty long wait on a line outside the restaurant (I had to bribe/appease the kids with a crepe from the Avant le Comptoir store next door).

Enjoy and best wishes for gustatory happiness in a country that so thoroughly expects its citizens to take August off that the highways feature electronic messages, in French, wishing drivers a happy vacation!
