Early Dinner near La Madeleine

Bonjour

We;ve been to Paris several times, and we still cant find a nice, not overly touristy restaurant within walking distance from La Madeleine where we can get a nice meal BEFORE a concert which begins at 8:30 PM.

Any suggestions?

We've always been satisfied with Chez Clément Opéra at 17 boulevard des Capucines. It is a chain and some of their other locations are not as good but this one is fine in my experience. Not great, just decent, but they serve all day so you can have an early dinner there.

There are plenty of brasseries around Opera with continuous service. You could check Grand Cafe or Cafe de la Paix for example.

L'Ecluse, at 15, place de la Madeleine, is open nonstop from 11 am until late evening. It is a good wine bar; we usually order a plate of charcuterie and another of cheese and share.

We really enjoy this place and visit once or twice every trip to Paris. The food is excellent, service friendly, welcome warm.

As with most places not having continuous service, earliest dinner time is 7 PM, but they are very accommodating here. I'm sure if you advise you need to be finished by a certain time, they would comply (unless you order five courses).

We typically have one, maybe two courses, and do not linger over drinks or wine. Service here is swift, but not rushed, so you may find this place appealing.

It's located right around the corner from La Madeleine.

No matter where in the world, it's usually difficult to schedule dinner and a concert. You don't want to rush through a nice dinner or be so full that you doze off during the concert.
