Paris and Provence with a 2 year old

Hey all -

First time posting on the France board, but long-time poster on the NYC boards.

We're coming to France from Brooklyn on 10/14 and staying in the 6th in Paris from 10/14 - 10/18, then heading down to Provence (probably staying in Menerbes) until the 22nd.

I've been going through old posts on here and in other places, but I'm looking for some lunch/dinner/snack recommendations for both places. We will have our 2 year old daughter with us, but (if I do say so myself) she is fairly well-behaved in restaurants.

Typically, we eat out very early these days (around 5:30 or 6) back home, but I assume that is too early in France. We're also not opposed to plowing through a meal and leaving early if she acts up. No use bothering our dining neighbors and making it stressful on ourselves as well. But, we take her just about anywhere, from little taco dives to fancy restaurants (if you know Brooklyn/Manhattan, we've taken her to Maialino, Babbo, Colonie, Pok Pok, etc., usually without incident). Or, grabbing some delicious provisions from markets and eating in a park or our hotel room.

That's a long way of saying, any recommendations in either place? So long as the food is tasty and the restaurant is ok with a kid in the dining room, we'll go just about anywhere, except for I suppose the uber-fancy restaurants.

Thanks in advance!
