Paris with 11-yr-old daughter

BobTheEater65 | Mar 15, 2009 06:27 AM

I am taking my daughter to Paris for 4 nights on April 5. She has never been outside the US, let alone to the food capital of the world. She is not yet a gourmand, and I think it's too early to do something like Taillevent that she would not appreciate. Instead, I am planning on sticking to some places that have solid food but are strong on atmosphere that an 11-yr old would like and appreciate. For example I plan to go to Au Pied de Cochon, which is not something I would probably try on my own, but I think she''ll appreciate the atmosphere and the pig-parts menu. I am looking for recommendations that fit this bill for an 11-yr-old girl - food she will love and atmosphere that will make her feel like she had a traditionally Parisian experience. Apologies to the purists - I know Paris is not Chuck E. Fromage, but I don't want her first trip to Europe to be a bore. (PS - I am watching with interest the string about the parent with the 13-yr old ballerina, but that inquiry focuses on Opera Garnier area - I am interested in all Paris). ALSO - anyone have anything good (or bad) to say about Rick Steves' recommendations? I experienced great success with his suggestions in Italy. Thank you!
