food plans for an eclectic group in Paris

njberk | | Mar 7, 2013 05:22 AM

Will be in Paris early July and have an eclectic group - parents and friends all of whom have various tastes and priorities when it comes to food. A few of the group does not like "rich" food (read cream), or any of the more adventurous stuff (read organ meat or other body parts not usually consumed at home). We will be in Paris for 4 nights (Tues thru Fri). We travel every year, mostly to Italy, and I always make the plans and reservations.
I am trying to hit some highlights and please all 7 of us in the group as best I can. My thoughts were to hit one place that fits the following Bistro, French fusion, a French dining "experience" and maybe a neighborhood joint. Thoughts so far were
Tuesday - early sitting at Chez L'ami Jean (we will be tired arriving this day). Will there be enough choice here to please the group with the prix fixe?
Wednesday - having a late afternoon food tour so thinking of L'Avant Comptoir or Fish La Boissonnerie (staying in this general area)
Thursday - Ze Kitchen Galerie
Friday - Having difficulty deciding between a formal place (suggestions please - do we try Jules Verne, or Spring, or Le CInq or Le PreCatalan or Relais du Comptoir?) One of our group has been to Paris more than I recently and he wants us all to go to La Gran Cascade, I am more inclined to try one of the others... What would you all do?? I am actually more comfortable going to more casual places with great food but I would do fancier to please the group. Really want to try Bistro Paul Bert or Le 6 Paul Bert but not sure when to fit that in... Lunches I think will be based on where we wind up touring around the city. Might wing those. Are these selections solid? When do I need to reserve? Any thoughts and comments more than welcome. THANK YOU!!!
