Paris Restaurant Recommendations

May 22, 2023,03:36 AM

Heading to Paris for a week on Wednesday to celebrate my daughter’s engagement. Staying at the Crillon on Place de Concorde. Looking for casual places for lunch on Friday and Saturday and for dinner Sunday through Tuesday. 

Will reservations be required and if so, will they be obtainable? Is Le Regelade on St. Honore still good?

Laurent off the Champs Elysee will be enjoyable...great food and very good wine list
