Hello- my boyfriend and I will be in Paris Dec 20-27. We are very new to the Paris dining scene but have scoured this site and others for recommendations- I have pasted our reservation list so far below. Any feedback, good or bad, would be appreciated.
We have left some evenings and all our breakfasts/lunches free so that we might also pop into small shops/cafes/bistros that we may come across. We would like to eat simply during the days as our dinners are undoubtedly going to be quite elaborate.
We are staying at the Plaza Athenee. Are there small places nearby to the hotel or in neighboring arondissements that we should stop into? Also, does anyone have recommendations for a great place to simply try cheese and wine? Or good cheese/wine/pastry shops for edibles to bring home? We don't have any dietary, time or monetary restrictions- just to enjoy ourselves and take in as much of the local food/cultural scene as possible.
Thanks for your help!
