Restaurants & Bars 2

5 nights in Paris

This is my first trip to Paris, so I'd like to start off with more classic cuisine. Also, I hope to avoid French restaurants with Japanese Chef since I have been in Tokyo for nearly one year.

Here is my list

Two high-end: Le Taillevent(lunch) and Epicure(dinner)

One old school (lunch, just for atmosphere): La Tour d'Argent or Le Grand Véfour
I don't know which one is more suited for my purpose, or are these iterative with Taillevent?

Midrange lunch: Les Tablettes De Jean-Louis Nomicos

Bistros: Pramil, Le BAT, Chez Denise
I hope at least they have a blackboard write in a clear hand so that I can use translation app

1-2 modern or cutting edge: David Toutain, Le Chateaubriand or Bones
I'm not sure which is right for me as a first time visitor.

I plan to go to Versailles on Sunday and have a picnic, does Marché Notre-Dame open at that time?

I hope I can get some unique experience in Paris. (e.g. I may say Joel Robuchon Tokyo is good but you can find many better restaurants in Paris, and Quintessence is unique that worth a visit.)

Please let me know if you have better suggestions.
