Would be glad to get comments,ideas and directions to complete my list. Still a couple of months to go (coming this time for the semi marathon on March, anyone else here enjoys running almost as much as eating :-) Well not simultaneously, most of the time..).
So plenty of time to decide, book etc.. My plan is to do almost daily lunches outside (8 days) and have dinners at apartment. Hopefully i will be able to "capture" some of Paris resto wonderful expiriences even at lunch.
2 places on my final list at this point - Josephine Chez Dumont on the "somehow old time" bistro spot and mainly for the Duck stew (and souffle desert) and Septime - a place that seem to offer what i like mostly in restaurants, innovation with much respect to tradition and especially reasonable portions of serving evan if food is innovative (and i might have totally misjudged the place but i will take the risk).
From this point on - nothing is decided yet. I'm spending hours on hours on the archive here and blog reports on the net (it fun almost as eating), writing many names and places but still "no special connection" yet. I open for everything, really, as long as budget does not exceed Septime lunch budget even to the 50-60 area.
This budget of course not for all lunches, but for another memorable one. For that i will try to add about 2-3 very nice maybe "next thing" places at 30-40 Euro area (not neceserally in the innovation category), location is non issue, if possible for places where i can get even "mini degustation"/4-5 good dishes which included cheese plate etc, that would be nice, but i'm probably a bit naive :-)
Btw on my secondery list are also CLJ and Le Agape Substance, don't know exactly why but a bit unsure about going there solo at lunch, and also the tasting menu and portions at agape feel a bit too "small and technical" for the price, but maybe i'm again, totally wrong.
Thanks !! and sorry for making this message too long.
