We're going to be in Paris in early November, and I thought I would take a day and go over to the Champagne area and tour and taste and have a nice dinner.  I would appreciate any suggestions about what city to go to, what champagne houses to visit and where to have a nice lunch or dinner.  Thanks!

A few suggestions while in Champagne:

La Grillade Gourmande (Epernay)- Excellent. Highly recommended.
Le Bateau Ivre (Reims)- Veuve Cliquet recommended this cafe for lunch and we enjoyed our meal very much. Wouldn't go out of your way to eat here but if you are in Reims sightseeing it is definitely worthy of lunch consideration.
Les Berceaux (Epernay)- Very nice upscale restaurant or try their more casual restaurant Bistrot 7 next door.

Wine bars:
C. Comme (Epernay)- Highly recommended. If you are into small producers this is the place. Tons of Champagne you can't find in the US. Great flights to choose from and their cellar is filled with unique Champagnes at reasonable prices.
Perching Bar (Verzy)- Drinking Champagne in a treehouse bar? Yes please. A truly unique experience.
