I know this is silly but I don't want to be rude or make poor decisions.
Is it really that easy to figure out which places have takeout goodies, like wine and cheese and rotisserie chicken for picnics (other than Monoprix and obvious boulangeries?) Should I just show up to the park of my choice and then look around?
Are there cover charges on top of the food/drink order when you sit in a restaurant or a cafe (indoor or out)?
What are the norms, if any, for time of day to have certain meals, as in a plate of cheese and wine as my meal if I'm sitting in a restaurant.
How do you say tap water in French, so I can ask for that and not pay for bottled water?
Maybe I'm just on planning overload mode right now but I don't want to make bad decisions (e.g waste money) especially since I can't understand French.
Thanks again for your help :)
