November in Paris - Please comment on my choices

Going to Paris in mid-November. We will have dinner Wednesday through Saturday, and lunch Thursday and Friday. We want to try places we have not been to before. When we were there 2 years ago we really liked Kei and Neva Cuisine. Our preference is for innovative contemporary cuisine rather than traditional. I particular like to find young, up-and-coming chefs who have star potential, but have not yet achieved the recognition to be able to charge exorbitant prices.

I have wanted to have lunch at Le Cinq for years, and this time will finally be able to do it. At 95 euros it is a splurge but looks like something that should be experienced if only once in a lifetime. Can anyone tell me how much to expect to spend for a bottle of wine there, not anything high-end, but along the lines of Cotes du Rhone, Beaujolais, Cahors? For the other lunch I am planning on L'Instant d'Or.

For dinners, I am thinking about Le Galopin, Ober-Sale, Pirouette and Semilla. Had considered Youpi et Voila, but it gets very mixed reviews.

Any thoughts or alternative suggestions would be much appreciated.
