My husband and I are traveling to France at the end of Dec. We'll spend two nights in Amboise and three nights in Paris. The only place I have in mind that we must eat at is Les Papilles in Paris. I've been before and absolutely loved it and I'm sure my husband will feel the same.
I'd love some suggestions for other places in both locations. We're not at all picky and would honestly lean more to the adventurous side. Price isn't a major issue, either, but that said, I don't want to go someplace totally over the top and super fancy/stuffy. I typically just wing it when I go to Paris and can't recall having a bad meal there, but I'd like to actual plan it this go-round.
We'll be in Paris on New Year's Eve, so any recommendations for that (food or otherwise) are also welcome. I've been there before on NYE a few years ago, but that was a very different time in my life--single and there with a friend so our goal was simply to go out, drink and have a great time. Not that my husband and I wouldn't enjoy that, but on a different level.
Thanks in advance!
