Restaurants close walking distance of Hotel and opera house
We are on the May 8th tour. We are looking for a restaurant for Monday night (free time) in Paris. All the places we've been to before are a taxi ride away and we are going to the Ballet at 7:30 at the opera house so would like to keep it walking distance. Are "Mondays" and issue with Paris restaurants being open? While we could eat early, we would prefer something after the Ballet which I'm guessing will be 10ish. Not looking for super fancy just really good food. We like small "local" places if venturing out. We can handle enough french to order dinner. I read that there is a restaurant at the opera house now which might be an option if we eat before the performance. Has anyone eaten there ?
