Critique My Quick 2 Days of Meals Please!

mwiley02 | Sep 1, 201605:52 PM     2

Thank you Paris hounds for your ideas and in-depth discussions. Here is what I am thinking for my husband and my 2 day trip to Paris. We are coming from Provence and decided to do the fancy meals down there. But for context, we are in our early 30's, from NYC and looking for some great meals. We want wonderful #1, but since it is my husband's first time to Paris, atmosphere counts too.

Day 1:
Get off TGV and browse food at Bon Marche, Poilane and Barthelemy cheese while doing some shopping
Dinner in that area either at Restaurant Joséphine Chez Dumonet or at Le Fontaine de Mars before we see the Eifel Tower. Looking for a classic bistro for that night.
Drinks afterwards at Monsieur Bleu for view (I know it is touristy) or I heard Pershing Hall Bar is good

Day 2:
Le As Du Falafel (my fav) for lunch
Dinner at Chez Astier. Or was thinking Paul Bert or Frenchie Bar if it isn't an ordeal. I've read people don't love Astier, but I want something romantic with good atmosphere for our last night there...but only if the food is good
Might head to Le perchoir for drinks after

Thanks!
