10 Day Foodie Trip to Paris in April 2011

syzal | Jan 31, 201104:19 AM

My partner and I will be making a trip to Paris in April and need some help with our food itinerary. At the moment, we're planning to visit some of the fine dining establishments, casual cafes and bistros and eat lots of pastries and desserts (because my partner has a really sweet tooth). These are the places that we've shortlisted so far. Would appreciate if you could give your opinion on whether these places are complementary cos we want to make sure that we don't end up eating too much of the same thing. One thing is we're planning to visit Bras at Lagouile and we're concerned that the food might be similar to the other fine dining places that we've shortlisted.

The restaurants we've shortlisted are as follows:

Le Cinq

Le Meurice

Le Chateaubriand
Chez Dumonet
Restaurant Allard
Les Comptoire du Relais
Cocottes des Christian Constant
Chez Flottes
Bistro Les Papilles

I have some other questions which might sound stupid but here goes...

1) Do restaurants in France/Paris serve tap water or do we always have to order bottled water?

2) Would it be too ambitious to have a 3 course dinner meal at say, a place like Frenchie after having a 3 course lunch at LeDoyen?

Please do let me know if there's any place which is worth trying.
Thanks in advance for your help!
