La Regalade vs. Le Severo

If you had to choose between the two for dinner, which would it be? We're staying nearby, and only for one night, so I'd love some help choosing!

Best Boeuf Bourguignon in Paris?

my husband and i had the WORST experience at chez rene. the service was horrendous, which i would have easily overlooked had the food been good. however, we ordered beef bourguignon and coq a vin, two classics. Both were disgusting. It was like the meat in both had been cooked - way overcooked, tough, and dry - separately, and then thrown into the exact same sauce. It bordered on unedible. Such a disappointment.

Need help choosing among the following restaurants!

My husband and I want to do lunch at two of the GREAT restraurants, since it will be more affordable. Here's what I've narrowed it down to, I'd appreciate any recommendations (esp if you've had their set lunch menus):

Guy Savoy
Taillevent
Pierre Gagnaire
Les Ambassadeurs
Le Relais (Plaza Athenee)
Ledoyen
Le Cinq
L'atelier de Joel Robuchon
Les Boquinistes
Le Comptoir
Drouant
Aux Lyonnais
Le Meurice
Le Grand Vefour

So if you could only got to two, which would they be?

Thanks!
