Paris is notorious for shutting down in the month of August.  But there are still a number of excellent restaurants open for all or a good part of the month.  Here are some of my favorites.  See my Crème de la Crème list for more details on each establishment.

Note: this list is for August 2011. I will be sure to update it for 2012 once schedules are determined!
