I am mostly inquiring about MUST food shopping. I might do one or two restaurants if someone cares to push something blatant. I am skipping Bocuse proper so no 3 stars, could be lunch or dinner.But choosing restaurants is not a huge concern for me.
I have looked through threads and some websites and the usual couple of market choices come up but would a Tue afternoon to Thu afternoon trip be better/worse/similar to Fri afternoon to Sun afternoon?
Also, a brief perusal gave me the impression that much is closed even the first week of August but I did not see so many specifics about all the markets and shops. True/mostly true/false? I am attempting to go in July but it is pushing later and later on, that is why I ask.
I have found the one google maps link on the board(http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&...) with many shops but I have not found a short list of best boulangeries/patisseries as I like. If they are on that link, great, if not and the list is somewhere, I would appreciate the info and apologize for not finding it on my own. I, too, do not care for the infinite repetitive questions that are the usual for Paris. Am I one of thooooooooooooooooooose people now?
I will also attempt more research on the subject in case that list has not been done.
Thanks in advance.
