My husband and I will be traveling to France this summer. I have never been and he went many years ago. All hotel decisions have been made and a couple dinner reservations. It's looking like Paris will be quite busy, Annecy leisurely, and Beaune languid but educational.
Paris, 3 nights (staying in Montmartre)
Le Cave de Abessess lunch / snacks / wine
Annecy, 3 nights
Beaune, 3 nights
Maison de Colombier
Louiseau des Vignes
Paris, 1 night
My main question is considering the restaurants mentioned above, where else should we eat? I've seen that lunches in Paris are more affordable but I'm worried that would cash us out for the rest of the day. If we wait for dinner to be the big meal I'll be able to see more sights.
Is it a bad idea to leave a couple meals up to fate?
Places that have caught my eye:
Gare au Gorille
Le Perchoir (or no. 3 for food)
Given this timeline and info, where would you go?
