Help meeting friends @ CDG and Paris/Provence lunch/dinner reservations

Jump to last reply

I will be arriving at CDG approx. 3 hrs before friends, also from the USA. We are all flying Delta and will arrive at Terminal 2. I wasn't going to check my bag, but now am thinking that I will, so won't be able to meet them at the gate. I also plan on exchanging money and getting our museum passes while I am waiting. Anyway, any suggestions for a good place to meet?

My more important question though, is reservations for meals in France. I have been to Paris 3 times for short trips, and spent 5 days in the countryside around Dijon, and have never worried about finding a great place to eat without reservations. I have to say, though, I haven't been in 15 years. However, in reading the posts here, it seems that to get a meal, especially at dinner, at a good place we may need to do that. We will be in Paris 6/18-6/24 and Provence (basing out of St. Remy) for the next week. I've never had to plan that far in advance for where to eat--any help on whether that is really necessary or not. I don't even know where to start if it is necessary. We will be staying at the Hotel Rue Clement in the St. Germaine area. Also, I'm a little scared of the prices people are saying they pay for lunch, let alone dinner. We were hoping to pay no more than 60 euros for nice dinner, but that may not be possible?
Sorry for the long post, but thanks for any help!
