Which of these to fill in meal gaps?

le souk
La Table de Fès
le 404

L'ami jean
La regalade

Les Diables au Thym
la ferrandaise
Chez Dumonet
Chez Denise

So, I will have 4 days with nothing to do(well, besides what I choose)save for 2 meals. That leaves 6 meals though I am sure I will fill some of that with bread, cheese and chocolate.
So, I would like to know maybe 4 of these to choose or any other recos. No more high price Mich stars, please. Value/mid priced, very good to great food, location doesn't matter much, neither do the trappings of the establishment.
I was going to do one North African/Couscous(I have never had it in Paris) but are they really great or just, THIS IS THEBEST ONE and it is decent?
Also, I was primed to do a "meat" joint, Severo, L'AOC(or wherever else I get some raves about) but reading some more about them it seems there is a fair amount of opinion saying they are not that great, merely ok or good. It is not pure hate of them so it makes me think these are legit reviews. I don't want to go if the steak ain't great. Or just tell me if there is something in particular that is great there, that is fine.
Finally, the big standards La Regalade, L'ami Jean, are they certainly worth it?

Definitely will need 1 or 2 of these for dinners, probably on the weekend and I have no problem sitting at 22-2300 hours. In fact, preference would be to places where I am not the tail end of service, receiving the cold shoulder at, what I consider, an early hour.
That said, I do not have a problem with a relatively quick meal if that is how it is done throughout the night. I only don't care to be treated differently because the staff cares to head home.

Too much good and great food in Paris, a blessing and a curse. And I am having a difficult stretch sorting and filtering it all into what I want to do(usually just a lot of research and such and it gets done but it is just not progressing properly). Don't care to screw it up, have not been in awhile.

I apologize if this was somewhat of an incoherent mess, it is been a strange day.

Thank you much if you lead me down the proper path.
