Going to Paris this May for 8 nights (broken up by a weekend visit to Strasbourg). Celebrating my 40th bday year, which happens to be next month. There will be three of us. I've built up a list of places over the past few months from here and several ads I've seen pop up on social media. One of my travel partners would prefer not to break the bank, but considering it's a special bday trip I'd like to indulge in at least one expensive dinner and perhaps an expensive lunch (max for dinner about 100 Euro, max for lunch about 40-50 euro). Other meals should be max 20-30 Euro for dinner and perhaps 15 Euro for lunch.
We don't intend on dining out for every single meal, but I would like to have a well curated list to pick from while there. We are staying the first half off of Rue Montorgueil. The second part of our stay leaves us in the 10th, close to Gare de l'Est. Mr. Talbot, you've helped me before years ago. Hope to have your expertise once more.
Below I also included a list of boulangerie's that I've found online. Would also love feedback on good farmer's markets.
-Pierre Sang Oberkampf (I once dined here for lunch and loved it; wouldn't mind a return visit)
-Bistrot Paul Bert
-Le Relais Gascon
-Chez Alain Miam Miam (I know it's not a restaurant, but heard good things)
-L'Oiseau Blanc (as much as I would not like to pay 70 Euro for lunch, I keep reading great things about this place and views look stunning)
-Boulangerie La Parissienne
-Du Pain et des Idees
-Patisserie Yann Couvrer
(I've left out Poilane because I go here every time I come to Paris; and Ble Sucre is just too far to go for a kouign amman)
