I need help finalizing my restaurant itinerary for our October trip. We are only there 4 nights, Friday through Tuesday. Here is my plan followed by my questions:

Friday night: We will be dealing with jet lag from our 10am arrival from Texas. I am not planning on making dinner reservations for this night. Does that make sense?

Saturday: Chez L'Ami Jean- No reservations yet, but calling Monday.

Sunday: Le Café de l’Homme (will it be too cold for terrace? too expensive?) or
Le Relais de L’entrecote or
La Fontaine de Mars

Monday: La Regalade- Is it okay to do both this restaurant and L' Ami Jean-Is there food style/taste too similar?

Am I leaving out an absolute 'must'?

Other restaurants to consider:
Restaurant du Palais-Royal
Le Pamphlet
Benoit (this would have to be lunch)
La Rotunde Montparnasse
Le Petit Troquet
Au Bon Acceuil

I have picked these restaurants based on my countless hours of research, but this is my first international vacation, so I would love advice and recommendations. We are staying in the St. Germain des Pres area and would like to stay under 50 euros per person.
