A Europe Virgin needing help

fm2002 | Jul 13, 2014 10:11 PM

Ok first the disclaimer. I'm well traveled, but never been to Paris,France or Europe. I'm a casual foodie who considers Japan and Thailand as my favorite places for food. I've done some research (10 pages on the France forum here) and a few other Google searches. I don't speak any French and my wife is Thai. So communication will be difficult. All that said we are adventurous.

Specifics - arrive first week of October for 10 days. We're staying 5 nights

@ Radisson Blu Hotel Champs Élysées, 78bis Avenue Marceau (8 Arr), FR-75008, Paris

And 5 nights

The Westin Paris - Vendome, 3 Rue De Castiglione, Paris

I'm looking for

1. Splurge dinner @ a 3 Star
2. New Cutting edge ( JT type ), but w/o Asian influence
3. Great Value
4. List of 5 old classics not to be missed
5. Lively and rambunctious (people watching)

Appreciate any help!
