My family of four is heading to France for a three week trip. We'll have just four nights in Paris. I have researched the site quite extensively and am still a bit confused, so many wonderful choices. I have spent a great deal of time there, but not my kids, first time. My husband and I love a fabulous, long meal, but honestly not with the kids. We'll probably do one or two of those. Any suggestions on amazing dinners and lunches that will not break the bank, but authentic, innovative and still quick enough that the kids will enjoy as well? Thoughts I have so far...Frenchie, Le Regalade, West Country Girl, Le Bistrot Vivienne, Oscar, L'absinthe, Bistrot d'a Cote Flaubert, Glou,L'Armotik, Le Bouchon, Chez Grenouille, Le P'tit Caillou...for one nicer meal, likely L'atelier du Joel Robuchon...I've obviously listed the gamut(for lunches, dinners,etc....If anyone has any comments on the long(sorry) list above, or some MUST DO's-and I'm not concerned about location, as food really drives our travel itinerary. Thanks a lot! Oh, and also any thoughts on just a quick sit down, or pick up and walk around or picnic kind of place-think INO in Florence.. Thoughts?
