Hack my Paris Trip!

Thanksformutton | Apr 2, 201412:37 PM

So after doing my due diligence, here's my plan for an upcoming Paris trip in April. The background is I'm going with my wife, and my mom, who will be celebrating her 80th birthday Easter Sunday. None of us have been to Paris recently, so we will be on the tourist trail (so I’d like to get off it for meals at least). I wanted to get a diverse range of styles and neighborhoods, and I’m not sure I have achieved that, so please let me know your suggestions. Any interesting neighborhoods that I am neglecting that I should not miss? Any places that would be totally uncomfortable for a fairly young 80-year old?

Friday diner: Terroir Parisian Bourse, which is around the corner from our apartment.

Sat. lunch: Semilla, (6th)

Sat diner at our apartment.

Sunday marche enfant rouge lunch (3rd)

Sunday night birthday dinner at 110 taillevent (8th) any Recs for an apertif with a view of the Arc or on the champs before dinner?

Monday Katsandwich to go from Abri. (10th)

Monday dinner Pirouette (1st)

Tuesday picnic at Versailles

Tues. Dinner Galopin (11th) is this a fun part of the 11th at night, or should I look elsewhere? Haven't heard many reviews in the past couple of years.

Wednesday lunch at someplace traditional, either Paul Bert, or L'ami Jean?

Wednesday night, we are going to the Louvre, suggestions for something small without reservations around there? maybe just eat left overs from lunch.

Thursday a day trip to Reims or Epernay. Any suggestions as which day trip you prefer, or casual restaurants you recommend in either place.

Thursday night a final dinner at Chez Denise (or Chez Georges?? [or Christophe??].)

Thanks! And I promise to right a trip report!
