Restaurants in Alsace and Lorraine

We will be spending a week in Alsace (mostly) and Lorraine in early September. We have a reservation at Au Crocodile but that's it so far. We will have a car and will be driving the wine route and then perhaps to Nancy and maybe Metz. All suggestions are welcome, especially for Monday nights.
Thanks in advance.

          . . . during this trip we also visited Nancy (on a Sunday), and since I'm fond of the Flo chain we went to L'Excelsior. If you like brasseries with considerable flair, I recommend it highly, particularly for a Sunday afternoon, since a lot of Nancy seems to congregate there then. It's near the train station (and central parking):
