I have been going to the Chowhound site almost on a daily basis for the past several months. I've read and researched a ton of restaurants to come up with this list. Places have gone on and off the list based on input from various sources.
Thanks to everyone for their feedback on restaurants, especially JT, Parnissien, Parigi, Phil D, Mangeur. I know I'm forgetting some of you, but know it is all appreciated.
My husband and I are spending a week in Paris (7th) then going to the Alsace region for four days and back to Paris for three nights (6th) before our departure (mostly for last minute food shopping to take home!). I know there are varying opinions on the 7th, but my thought was that it gets dark early and an Eiffel Tower view from our cozy apartment would it very special.
We arrive on December 11th. Here is my list:
Wed Dinner - Chez L'ami Jean
Thursday Lunch - Table D'Aki
Friday Lunch - Le Saotico
Saturday Dinner - Spring (reservation made)
Sunday Lunch - a Day trip to Reims - Le Bocal
Monday Dinner - Les Premices
Tuesday Dinner - Bistro Belhara
My plan is to have one meal out and eat in our apartment in the evening or catch a baguette sandwich, etc. if we are on the go during the day.
Wed Dinner in Riquewihr - La Grappe d'Or
Thurs Dinner - Le Sarment d'Or
Friday Dinner - Au Trothus
Saturday Dinner Colmar - ?
Train back to Paris
Sunday Dinner - ?
Monday Lunch - RSH or Pirouette (we dined at Pirouette last year and really enjoyed it). Christmas concert that evening at Eglise St Germain des Pres
I thought we would have an early dinner at Belotta Belotta
Tuesday Dinner (Christmas Eve) - 110 Taillevent
Do I have a good enough mix? Also, any suggestions on Sunday night in Paris and dinner in Colmar is most appreciated.
