Foodies in Paris 17th w/ baby...reccs?

Yankunian | Oct 3, 2008 01:49 AM

Hi, last-minute weekend trip to Paris on the cards (my first time!) and I'm throwing myself on your mercy for reccs. Here's the deal... will be staying in the 17e near Porte de Champenet metro stop with our very chilled out 4-month old daughter. She'll be riding in her buggy and is not big enough for a high chair, so we'll need places where we can roll in and roll out.

We love food and restaurants, but are not into formal Michelin-starred places with a stilted atmos. We're looking for authentic places we can eat wonderful French food and enjoy a relaxed and welcoming vibe - bistro type places for dinner, good lunch places in interesting neighbourhoods (prepared to go far on the metro, but would prefer not to have to change trains multiple times...) Also any good places to get some pastries for breakfast near our hotel on Boulevard Berthier.

We've got some ££ socked away to spend on eating so not too worried about ferreting out super budget places; however, in my experience some of the best places aren't the most expensive. Any ideas for us?

And a few general questions: We'll be hoping to eat earlyish, like maybe 6:30 or 7 - is this do-able in Paris and do we have to book? And how are they on breastfeeding in restaurants over there? Many thanks, Paris hounds!
