Going to Paris for a week in May and want to have a well-rounded dining experience. Tend to like traditional, non-fussy bistro faire, rather than tasting menu cuisine. Ambiance also counts a lot in my book. I'd rather it be loud and crowded, than formal and staid. I like to think of myself as an adventurous eater, but I draw the line at ears, feet, and cock's combs. Here's what I'm thinking for dinners:

Sun: l'Auberge Bressane
Mon: La Regalade
Tues: Chez Dumonet
Wed: Aux Lyonnais
Thurs: Chez l'Ami Jean
Fri: Chez Denise
Sat: Chez Janou

Any first impressions? What am I missing? After Paris, I'm heading to the Basque Country (both in France and Spain). So, if I were to switch out any of these meals I'm thinking Chez l'Ami Jean. Also, I'm on the fence about Chez Dumonet because I don't want to get stuck in the "tourist room" I've heard about.

Other contenders are L'Agrume, L’Epigramme, Jadis, Papilles, Rech, La Gazzetta.
