Suggestions for great eats in Paris, France

My wife and I will be in France for 4 days and nights in Novemer. Can anyone help us with recommendations on great places to eat? We are staying in the 1st Arrondisement but I imagine we will be in all the major tourist spots.

My "To Dine" List

wow, thanks Das Ubergeek! I will be making a lot of changes on my list! as far as izakaya, i wanted to find something closer to home even though I totally agree with you that west hollywood is quite "bleh" for any type of asian food. I also omitted the korean because I am korean and have tried pretty much everything that k-town has to offer. Thank you very much for your suggestions, much appreciated!

Loved Animal! Anything comparable?

I just had dinner at Animal restaurant and absolutely loved it! we ordered the foie gras appetizer, poutine, pork belly with kimchee, basque melted cheese, ribs, loco moco and fried quail. Outstanding! not to mention the prices were very reasonable and the ambience was great, not too pretentious. I have been searching for places like this in LA. Does anyone have any other suggestions on a restaurant that is comparable? Thank you!

Capricciosa Japanese Italian restaurant chain. Anyone know of a similar restaurant in LA?

my favorite restaurant while growing up was Capricciosa, a Japanese Italian restaurant based in Japan. Now there are tons of Capricciosas all over Asia but I don't think it has reached the US yet. I've been trying to find a restaurant that is similar but no success yet. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've been to Il Chianti and Blue Marlin, both not even close to good ole Capricciosa..
