I know...the Champs Elysees...it screams tourists.However, I got a good deal on a nice apt 2 blocks behind the Champs in the 8e. I'll be in Paris for 4 nights with my sister and my parents before we head down to Provence. It's actually my parents first time to France (also my dad's 60th bday present from me and my sister). I want them to have some really good dining experiences...I have reservations at Bon Accueil, Maison du Jardin and I'm debating between Petit Troquet and Florimond. But I'm looking for a place near our apt too. I figure on one of the nights where they are tired, we can eat in the neighborhood. Does a good restaurant even exist in the area or do you think we should just trek out every night?
