Thanks to everyone who helped when I asked re procuring staples for our apartment when I arrive late in the day In April. We are staying in the 7th but will travel anywhere for good food. We are comfortable in the City and have visitied at least annually for the past 8 years . We always enjoy new restaurants. Our French is passable and we love food and love wine even more. We have 5 nights( I have an extra nite as I am arriving from London and Husband coming next am from Boston ) But I will enjoy the food and hospitality of Ms Ginny at Petit Tonneau on my solo dining night. We are relatively adventurous eaters and are not Euro shy as this is our annual blow out . Here is my review from last year if that helps http://www.chowhound.com/topics/372373 ( go to bottom )
Here are some we are considering and have not tried :
Beauvilliers in the 18th
Ardoise in the 1st ( Sunday)
Bascou in the 3rd
Chez L'Ami Jean in the 7th ( following the hype on this board)
Jean in the 9th
Petit Ponttoise in the 5th ( been before and like it and it is a Sunday nite option)
And we want one starred and special nite ( we have loved Hiramatsu and Lucas Carton before the renovation ) so we are thinking, thanks to Souphie
Elysees in the 8th..
All comments very gratefully accepted ..and I will report !
