I haven't posted on this board for awhile but read it religiously. We are finally getting back to Paris for a weekend after a 2 year drought. Staying in the 8th, distance to travel for food and price not issues. Husband is a fish guy and edgy side of the menu. I am more traditional and prefer meats. We have previously enjoyed among others CLAJ, Maceo, Hiramatsu, Guy Savoy, Dominique Bouchet, L'Arome , Willi's, Le Verre Vole , everything Constant ,Hated ETC ( don't know if it still exists , was vile ) and Apicus ( a really bad night) We would like to explore new choices and unfortunately don't have a lot of time to do so.
Parameters are :
Terrace dining would be lovely as we don't get to Paris often in the spring
Modern or traditional French preferred tho exception made for remarkable Asian
No price limit but likely one star if any star max for meals needed
Prefer more quiet atmosphere and not rowdy
Don't really care what language anyone speaks as long as they expect great food
Schedule this far:
Arrival Friday and need reservation around 9pm have had Terroir Parisien , Cauis and Pramil on my radar. No idea why but they caught my eye. Think of them as Au Bon Accuiel back in the day when it was special. That's what we are looking for.
Saturday have decided on terrace lunch at Les Climats. Need rec for good wine bar with food for light meal around 9pm Saturday.
Sunday traveling to Auxerre during day to visit ailing friend and have reserved Les Tablettes JLM for a final and most elegant dinner.
Monday back to Boston
So it boils down to a special bistrot Friday night and a great wine bar Saturday night
Appreciate your advice in advance. Thank you.
