We are an American family of 5 with teenage children who love to eat and are adventurous. We spend months every year in Italy but this is our first real trip to Paris. We know how to find what makes us happy in Italy but feel overwhelmed by the choices on Paris. We mostly enjoy small restaurants with creative but not challenging food (no goose barnacles). Great quality ingredients and prices that are fair. We prefer meat to fish. We would rather not be surrounded by tourists. We are not looking for notches on our belt. We are willing to travel for our food. We do not want elaborate, starred experiences; just excellent food, well prepared!
Can you recommend two restaurants? The choices do not have to be scaled down for our kids. They love to eat. We are going mid-June so places with long waiting lists for reservations would be difficult.
Thanks in advance for your ideas!
