Paris for 8 days at end of April, looking for lunch/dinner ideas

Schatzi29 | Mar 31, 2008 07:11 PM

My husband and I are going to Paris the last week of April for 8 days - Staying in the 7th Arr.

Although we're planning to have a lot of picnics (as well as eating lots of crepes and falafel!) we were wondering if fellow chowhound members had any suggestions of some great places for lunch and dinner.

Our overall goal in France is to finally have authentic French food with the freshest ingredients. We'd ideally like to have a range of places in different budgets (since the exchange rate is crazy right now!), with maybe one or 2 "splurge" places for either lunch or dinner.

Here's the few places I've been recommended -- any thoughts? Additions? Thanks SO much!
Also, how far in advance should we call to make reservations for these places?

Ze Kitchen Galerie
L'ami Jean
Epi Dupin
Bistrot du Dome
Min veile ami
Jules Verne (I'm definitely NOT tied to this one -- and we'd likely do lunch due to the fact that it is only a few weeks away and we likely can't get dinner reservations)

Thanks in advance for all of your help!!
