My husband and teenage daughter are going to Paris in 2 weeks (Aug 17-24). We have a nice itinerary planned, that focuses on different parts of the city, including Versailles. I am torn about whether to make dinner reservations. I don't want the reservations to drive our late afternoons (meaning, I don't want to miss the Mona Lisa because we have to get to a dinner reservation). On the other hand, we all love good food, are clearly looking forward to having some nice dinners, and I don't want to miss out on that experience because I didn't plan well (esp. since I understand that many restaurants are closed in August). A friend who just moved back from Paris suggested at least making a reservation for dinner at L’Homme or Quai Branly, admitting they were very expensive. I will also admit that I am a little intimidated about making the reservations over the phone. Is it a mistake to be casual about this? Suggestions?
