December Visit with 9 Year Old

YaYa | Sep 7, 201608:07 AM

Bonjour! We will be in Paris for 6 days with our 9 year old. I've been scouring the boards and just started reading Paris By Mouth and John Talbott's blog. I have to admit I'm feeling very overwhelmed and could use some suggestions based on where we will be in the city.

We would like to keep lunches under €35 per person, and dinners up to €50PP (cost exclusive of any wine/cocktail addition). We want to do one blowout meal preferably no more than €250 pp.

My son is a fairly adventurous eater, yet a big fan of comfort food. His favorite meal we prepare at home is Thomas Keller's roast chicken with root vegetables with a crusty baguette. He also enjoys oysters, curries and noodles.

We own several bakeries, and are also ardent cheesehounds and chocolate lovers.

Any suggestions based on our locale/budget/interests would be very welcome! In the meanwhile, I'll continue to do my homework via searches and the above mentioned blogs. :)

Day 1:
Arrive at 1PM - would love a suggestion for a classic French comfort meal. Staying in the 6th, heading over to view the Eiffel Tower that eve.

Day 2:
Notre Dame & Luxembourg Garden
Lunch at L'Aus du Fallafel
Dinner at La Coupole or Au Petite Suisse

Day 3:
Latin Quarter and Jardin des Tuileries (morning/afternoon)
Champs Elysees (evening)

Day 4:
Louvre (morning)
Montmartre (evening)

Day 5:
Catacombs (morning)
Le Marais (evening)

Day 6:
Saint Germain and Le Bon Marche (morning/afternoon)
