I know that this might be asking too much, Paris!!!

Last year 2 friends and I spent 10 days in Paris in January. It was the first time for two of us and we took turns picking out sights, restaurants, museums, shopping areas, etc. The 2 restaurants that I picked last year turned out to be the favorites. Now I'm up against the wall for the trip this year. We like to do a really great place as well as a few very "typically" Paris spots, and a couple of just really fun spots. I would appreciate any help! I know that it hard to get down to your favorites but I really would like to know. Thanks for your help. jwg

We had lunch at Jules Vern at the Eiffel Tower last year. It was beautiful and the food was terrific. We made reservations long in advance, but I don't think Jan. will be as crowded. Have a great time.

La Duree, on the Champs-Elysee, about two or three blocks up (and across the street) from the Virgin Megastore, toward the Arc de Triomphe. Great brunch place with a lot of Parisians...also great pastries!

Androuet--cheese restaurant near the Arc de Triomphe and Brasserie Balzar on the Rue des Ecoles near the Sorbonne. This is filled with local people. Be ;sure to go to the Luxembourg Gardens on Sunday to see the children playing, Place des Voges, and the Memorial to the Jewish Deported behind Notre Dame. It is very haunting. Don't forget Berthillon for ice cream and Angelina on the Rue de Rivoli for hot chocolate.

Les Bookinistes, 53 quai des Grands Augustins--in the 6th arr. was our favorite--one book said it was too trendy to still have good food, but our lamb was scrumptious and the desserts to die for!

I've gotten loads of wonderful ideas from the bparis.com website and discussion boards.
