I know.. too many similar questions so I'll try to be specific.
We're staying in the 8th but I'll ask for restaurant suggestions there in another post. Close by is nice but not necessary.
I don't eat much shellfish, only shrimp and am limited to frois gras when it comes to offal, but I love that.
I prefer a restaurant that isn't "stuffy", but more fun although I am in my 50's so I'm not looking for a "scene".
Probably prefer to keep things in the 50- 75E per person range. I love wonderful sauces and would like to keep this quite French.
I live in the SF Bay area and set the bar high.
And I greatly appreciate your thoughts and help.
