Thanks to many of you we have [I think] a fun itinerary for our first five nights in Paris. Then, on the suggestion of some of you, we're off to Alsace where we are staying in a small hotel just outside of Corton. I think we have a fun assortment of dinners lined up in Paris [we're staying in the 11th, so that defined many of our choices], but we are wide open to suggestions for Alsace.
For Paris, 1st day flying in, where I know we'll be jet-lagged and tired: dinner at Le Barav wine bar. Seemed nice and simple.
2nd night: dinner at Metropolitain
3rd night: Dinner at Marie Louise by Canal St. Martin
4th night: dinner at Galopin? [left message on phone today for reservations]
Last night: thinking of dinner at Ober Sale.
Any comments would be appreciated. We're hoping to have lunch at Au Passage one day, but most days we'll sort of wing it, depending on what neighborhood we're exploring. My sense of all the above restaurants is that the food is good, the prices are reasonable, and the vibe is low-key. With those adjectives in mind, if anyone has recommendations for Alsace, we're open to all suggestions. We'll have a rental car, and we're staying at http://www.agneau-katzenthal.com/
