Paris for 2 Nights (1st timer) - A Bistro, A Brasserie, and a Haute House

Searching4Dunny | Dec 4, 2009 03:18 PM

Hello All-

I will be traveling to Paris for the first time in September 2010 on a honeymoon trip with my wife-to-be. I have been searching this board for a few months now and have enjoyed many of the reviews. I need a little help with my chow itinerary.

Likes/Dislikes: I am a bit more adventurous than my other half but neither one of us are big fans of offal (to the sneers of many on this board, I'm sure). We both eat meat and fish with limits on the shellfish. Our favorite meals in the past have included: Jean-Georges, Babbo, Cyrus in Sonoma, CA, etc.

Some things we are looking to eat:

Croque Madame/Mons.
Steak Frites
Chocolate Souffle

We are looking for 2 lunches and 2 dinners - on Monday and Tuesday.

For the first lunch we are looking for something light light a croque w/ lively cafe ambience. We are staying in the 6th near St. Germaine and are thinking Les Deux may be good for this.

For dinner - we are looking for good bistronomy type food near the eiffel tower or with a view of it. Au Bon Accuiel is our thought for this meal.

Tues Lunch - we are looking to do a starred restaurant lunch. Guy Savoy, L'Aprege or Le Cinq are our choices. Leaning towards G.S. but like the Le Cinq dining room.

Tues Dinner - we are looking for some simple brasserie-like comfort food. Steak Frites w/ a souffle for dessert. Late eating since we will be having a big lunch. We are focusing on places in the Marais area since it sounds like a good place to walk around and hang out at night. We are thinking of Chez Denise for this one with an earlier drink at Bofinger.

Any thoughts or suggestions? I would greatly appreciate the help, thanks.

In summary the tentative schedule:

Monday Lunch - Croques at Les Deux or Cafe Flore
Monday Dinner - Au Bon Accueil - around to watch the eiffel light up (8pm?)

Tues Lunch - G.S., L'Arpege or Le Cinq
Tues Late Dinner - Chez Denise

Please advise )
