Help with Cote d'Azur & Paris Food Itinerary

cjhsu1026 | Apr 20, 201503:13 PM

Hello! My husband and I are honeymooning from 6/6-6/27. We are starting in Nice, working our way west to Avignon, and then heading north to Lyon and Paris.

We've plotted out our itinerary for cities we will want to visit, but really need some help in picking out some restaurants. We live in NYC so have an infinity for Michelin restaurants, but also LOVE to try the regional provence cooking.

So far I have the following restaurants in mind to visit but really need to hash out more details (since its hard to base my decisions on TA & Yelp...). We don't necessarily care if something is Michelin starred but would just like some delicious food :) We will also have a car so getting to places is not an issue.

Thanks in advance for your time and help!!!
