Must Eat Places in Nice and Paris

I know these threads exist in different places on this site, but I was hoping to find suggestions foe both. I will be in Nice for 4 nights and Paris for 5 nights at the beginning of June. What are some absolute must-eat places in both cities?

Thanks

    There's too many choices for "must eat" in Nice, but Keisuke Matsushima and Luc Salsedo are top drawer fine dining places. Don't miss the casual places for Socca (Lou Pilha Lehva) and hit up a boulangerie for Pan Bagnat and Pissaladière. (Local specs).

    Do not go to the everywhere-listed places like La Merenda (past its prime, overrated)
    or La Zucca Magica (microwaved food, not prepared on premises!)

      Save a meal for Flaveur, the newest * in Nice, run by two young brothers. The restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner during the week - the former offers a 25 euro menu, two choices in each course.The dinner menu offers more choices at a higher (but not much higher) price. Inspired but casual - NOT a tourist address.

        Flaveur is my current fave for Nice.

        I don't see the advantage. If you search and inquire separately, you find a huge amount of info, don't you think?

          Sunday brunch at the Negresco is under 70 Euros, including wine. The regular prix-fixe is about 90 Euros, but wine and drinks can more than double that. A truly elegant setting and a fine contrast the bistros mentioned.
