I am planning a week in Paris at the end of October. Travelling with a foodie friend from NYC. It's his second time, my ninth. I want to do a mix of some of the places we enjoyed last time as well as some good additions. We are adventurous eaters, don't mind travelling across town for food and we would like to try the newer/hip places.
We are staying at Hotel Relais Saint Germain because we loved it last year and so we can eat there :) They were terrific about getting all of my reservations sorted out last year.
La Table d'Eugene (I go every time I am in Paris - love this place!)
La Cigale Recamier (We went to Le Souffle last year - people have told me this is a better bet.)
Bistrot Paul Bert (oldie but goodie?)
L'Avant Comptoir (We went twice last year, so I'm sure we'll go again)
L'Avant Comptoir de la Mer (It's near the hotel, so of course we'll try it).
Thinking about Champeaux, but the reviews seemed a little "meh".
Le Comptoir (Last year, we were there during a school break and they served the standard menu at dinner. This time we are hoping to get the "gastronomique" menu and plan to eat there twice during our stay).
Frenchie Bar au Vins (I've been several times. Finally got reservations for Frenchie last year and to be honest, I prefer the vibe at the bar.)
Last year we went to Table d'Aki, Ze Kitchen Gallerie, l'ami Jean and Frenchie. All great meals, but looking to do something different this time.
I'm wondering if I should replace Chateaubriand with something else?
I appreciate any input you may have!
