This time (May 14-23) we're staying a little further out in the 15th so the plan is to check out some restos in our general vicinity. We'll happily do some traveling as well, although many of the places in the upcoming 10th and 11th (including Septime) are not an easy commute for us so while we may explore some of those options for a lunch, we're mostly not planning on it. We'd also love to have another Chow gathering so perhaps Souphie will be willing to be the point person for either another dinner at CLJ or perhaps a pastry party at Jacques Genin.
Here's a short list of some of our picks. Mostly, I'd like input on if you think there's enough variation in the places we're considering and some suggestions of what we might add to mix it up. I don't drink alcohol so we aren't considering wine bars. We have 9 nights in Paris and will cook/eat in at least a couple of evenings.
Le Grande Pan (our apartment is literally a 5 minute walk so this will be our neighborhood place!)
La Cantine du Troquet (any news on the Le Troquet?)
La Regalade (our favorite restaurant that we return to every time)
Chez Grenouille or L'Auberge des Saveurs (opinions on which for traditional French?)
We're not sure if we're going to do anything really upscale but if we do we're considering choosing between:
Le Grande Cascade
I'd love any and all input/opinions.
