I have been frustrated looking for restaurants in that it seems that a lot of the highly recommended restaurants (Spring, Les Papilles, etc) are basically serving a menu of whatever the chef is cooking on a particular day with very few choices. I would be fine with that but my wife and daughter are picky eaters and need a lot of choices in order to find items they like. Are there highly recommended Bistros, Brasseries or other restaurants that give you many choices between beef, chicken, shellfish, etc? I am a little reluctant to come to Paris without reservations and just walking around the streets looking at menus and deciding without knowing anything about a restaurant. It seems that L'Ami Jean does offer a fair amount of choice so that may be one pick for us. Also considering a lunch at Le Cinq.
