I am traveling to Paris for the first time with my husband and six year old daughter in late July, staying at Westin Place Vendome across from the Tuileries. We are foodies and our daughter is less so, but does not always need a kids menu. We have an open budget, and prefer restaurants with reservations (online is a bonus), early seating (630) or continuous service. Since we don't have a sitter we are looking primarily at bistros and brasseries, rather than fine dining Michelin star restaurants but would love to sample traditional French, modern French, basque. We are open to affordable prix fixe only restaurants (will just plan to order a set meal for my daughter and finish what she doesn't eat). I realize that the Paris metro makes things pretty convenient, but with a child we would prefer not to walk more than 5-10 mins to and from the metro stops.
Here is our itinerary so far- any comments would be greatly appreciated
Saturday- flight arrives 8am, arrive at hotel at approx 10am. Plan to head to Laduree, pierre herme and poss lunch chez l'ami jean. Then seine boat tour (if not too tired), then chez breizh for early crepe dinner
Sunday- Versailles - should I pick up sandwiches in the morning at Verjus or will there be some place decent once we get there? Not planning to travel into the town. Dinner at 58 tour Eiffel in the Eiffel tower.
Monday- mused d'orsay- need a fast lunch spot nearby maybe falafel or creperie. Then daughter has kids cooking class in Montmartre. After that maybe l'As du fallafel or chartier for early dinner? I love falafel but is l'As du fallafel worth a meal? Ambience seems not so great at night. We have Maoz here in Austin which is pretty good but if this is far superior to Maoz then I will make a trip
Wednesday- louvre. Need a lunch spot prob in the louvre - then Angelina at Louvre for hot chocolate. Pastries in the Tuilleries garden. Dinner possibly at Frenchie if I can get a reservation- would this be difficult with a six year old? If Frenchie is inappropriate or I can't get a reservation then other places might be chez denise, pirouette, drouant. I am open to suggestions. I love the menu at cafe constant but want to avoid any place that doesn't take reservations. A friend suggested au petit sud ouest and Benoit
