Before I make my reservations in Paris please look at my choices and make sure I have made the correct decisions for a first time visitor!
After much searching on Chow and other sites I have narrowed down my choices - based upon where we will be touring and quality of restaurants reviewed on these sites - please help confirm I have made some good choices:
Friday Lunch: Au Vieux Comptoir
Friday Dinner: Pirouette
Saturday Lunch: Cocettes
Saturday Dinner: Chez L'Ami or Frenchie depending upon reservations
Sunday Lunch: Breizh Cafe
Sunday Dinner: Cafe Des Musees or Chez Paul depending upon reservations
Walking pastries/desserts/cheese: Jean Millet, Gregory Renard, Lemoine, La Formagerie,Michel Chaudin,Lauderee, Patrick Roger, Laurent DuBois,Gerard Mulot
If there is anything that is highly recommended at the pastry, chocolate, cheese stores please let me know as well!!!
Thank you. Sorry I'm so late in responding (I'm moving and France Telecom/Free are driving me crazy).
Constant's places, thus Cocottes, are all good.
I don't know Au Vieux Comptoir
Pirouette is terrific
Chez L'Ami Jean or Frenchie both terrific
Sunday Lunch: Breizh Cafe OK for variety
Cafe Des Musees or Chez Paul (don't know Paul).
You are asking for affirmation of "correct decisions," but there are really no wrong answers! There are far more wonderful places to dine/eat in Paris than time to enjoy them all.
Regardless of choices you have listed, you will see a lot of Americans, as your choices are favs of Americans as written up a lot by US publications.
