Paris 2 and 3 Stars..Decisions, Decisions

I will be in Paris for four days in September. I would like to do maybe two or three Michelin starred meals. I do not want to overdo it, or over-reserve, as I have sometimes done in the past.

So, I am thinking one or two lunches, and possibly one dinner. I would appreciate advice and suggestions on the following:

I am thinking about lunch at Guy Savoy for their 100 euro internet special. I have never been to Guy Savoy, and all that hear, from others and from Souphie on this board seem to highly recommend. I have also never been to Arpege; do they offer something similar for lunch?

For my second lunch, I am thinking about Le Cinq (I also happen to have a $250 Four Seasons gift card;)). Or perhaps I should do this for dinner one night? Since I am traveling alone, I usually do my three-stars at lunch, to take advantage of the better value, as well as the slightly more relaxed atmosphere and somewhat less lengthy experience. But perhaps I could do a nice special dinner at Le Cinq?

Additionally, I love Pierre Gagnaire. I find their prix fixe lunch surprise menu (105 euro?) an incredible experience and, frankly, an incredible value. But I have done it a few times, and perhaps something different is better.

I also have not been to Senderens, and I am thinking about it for dinner. Any other more modern, creative, not overly heavy places I should think about?

Thank you.
