Narrowing down the list again - need some more input!

I'm taking my mom (who is somewhat of a chowhound) to Paris in December. We're meeting another chowhound friend there. After MUCH research we have, narrowed down some choices:
Wed: Le Reminet (We're staying in the 5th. I've been there and had a good experience; my friend wants to go)
Thurs: La Lozere (see my aligot thread - we're going for the aligot feast!)
Fri: Tentatively Josephine, Chez Dumonet
Sat: open
Sunday: Aux Trois Petits Cochons (from the recommendation of some friends who visit frequently)
Monday: This will be New Year's Eve, I'm thinking of La Cagouille
Tuesday: open

Here are some places on my maybe list:
Astier (cl Sat)
Le Hangar
Le P’tit Troquet
Le Pamphlet
Au Fils des Saisons
Au Pied du Fouet
Bistro Paul Bert
Le Rouge Gorge

But I am open to any and all suggestions! This will be my mom's first trip to Paris and I am treating. She's not into having a large lunch (I know that that would be a good way to sample a more expensive restaurant, but I don't think that will work for her). We're looking for good traditional food at a place where we won't be surrounded by nothing but fellow tourists. I want to make sure that we don't have experiences that are too similar, while still keeping with that theme. Oh, and I eat poultry and seafood, but no red meat.
What would YOU choose for the "open" nights?!
Thanks!!
