First off, thanks to this wonderful board (and all the links to food blogs, JT's in particular) for all the great advice in planning the food part of our 20th anniversary trip to Paris! We will be there Mon, Sept 10-Sun Sept 16. I hope I can prevail on you for some more advice. (we are not trad food fans but love escargot--easy to find?)
Right now, I only made reservations for a dinner at La Condesa and dinner at Pierre Sang Gambey. I only plan on maybe 1-2 more reservations because I do want some flexibility for our sightseeing plans and I don't want to take that many long meals when we have limited time. I am thinking of a first meal at a wine bar, Le Barav, which is near where are staying (haut Marais). I am eyeing other places for less involved meals/snacks/aperos eg. L'as du falafel (lives up to the hype?), Breizh Cafe (ditto), Mary Celeste and Candelaria. I was also intrigued by C.A.M. Also the Marche des Enfants Rouge seems like a fun place to check out and is near our accommodation.
Opinions on Mumi? We will be in and around the Louvre one of our days and that seemed like a good option for lunch or dinner.
Also, I planned to visiting two markets, Bastille and Aligre--overkill? I planned on eating brunch/lunch there--any stalls or suggestions in those areas?
Also, I am not finding any specific standouts online for Asian food--I am looking esp for Korean or Vietnamese. I am not like my parents who always manage to have at least one Korean meal while abroad (they found one even in Casablanca) but I find that big cities usually have some great Asian food choices.
