Will be in Paris for 5 days in late March. Going with the in-laws and 2 children (ages 12 and 9). Made reservations at L'Absinthe and Trumilou both for lunch. We are planning on having big meals for lunch and going light for dinners. Any other suggestions? My husband and I are having dinner at Spring and that will be our "special" adults only dinner.

    Are you staying in a rental or a hotel?
    Do you have other info to share: your taste preferences, budget?

      we will be in an apartment so the kids and grandparents will be having most of the dinners at home. Since we are in Paris, we want to have French food but I know we will be somewhat limited due to having to choose restaurants which will (a) accommodate children and (b) have at least one or two items that the kids will eat. My children will be happy with a good steak and/or chicken dish. We will be doing all the touristy sights so would appreciate any places near the major sights......

        I had a wonderful dinner at Josephine, Chez Dumonet in December with friends that included their 10 year old daughter. There is definitely food on their menu your children will gladly eat. And the restaurant is charming, the food, delicious.
