So I'm really into food. I work in the industry, I've been to great restaurants in a lot of cities in the US, and I'm going to Paris at the end of April. I'm really curious as to how I should go about setting up my trip restaurant wise. A few questions:
Is every place good and worthwhile that I will be walking by or should I have a game plan?
Will there be enough good restaurants in the area where I'm staying that I won't have to travel for dinner (St. Germain)?
Do I need reservations for places I go to?
Is the Michelin Guide a good idea to use as a resource, or can I just browse through chowhound posts?
Are there any not-to-be missed places that I need to go to for lunch/dinner, esp. in my area?
It's going to be morel and asparagus season, so I'm really excited, but, as you can all tell, I'm a little nervous at the prospect of such a trip. Any insight would be really helpful.
