We are going to Paris for 4 nights with 2 other couples at the end of August for my husband's 50th birthday and we would like to eat at restaurants with various cuisine that are located in different areas of the city as part of our "tour". We want to try bistros, brasseries, cafés and restaurants with cuisine ranging from (slightly) haute cuisine, traditional, rustic, nouveau, etc. We also want to eat at some places that offer an interesting or fun experience. Whew! Not too big of an expectation, huh?
Here is what we have :
Breakfast: Cafe Flore (historical/literary reasons)
Lunch: Le Cordonnerie (1e) - or should we go here for dinner since this is a popular "pub" area.
Les Papilles (5e) or Marche des Enfants Rouges (3e)
Les Closerie Lilas (fun "party" night?)
Taillevent (8e) little more high end than we would really like
or David Toutain (7e)
La Petit Rose des Sables (10e)
Late night snack at Chez Denise
Would you switch any of the lunches and dinners? Are La Petit... Cordonnaire and Reed too similar to do all 3? Just writing this I've gained 5 pounds! Thanks for your help!!
