Aupres du Clocher in Pommard http://www.aupresduclocher.com/Accueil.html [fabulous food, great wine list]
Ma Cuisine in Beaune [a legend]
Maison Colombier in Beaune http://www.maisonducolombier.com/ [Wine bar with really good food on small plates with a huge wine list]
Le Relais de Saulx in Beaune [Young couple, husband is the chef, wife handles the front; excellent food but limited choice, very well priced, good wine list]

Bring an appetite and order the Poularde de Bresse.

I know you said no 3 star restaurants but I would suggest you reconsider because Eric Pras is the real deal and not resting on his laurels. Prices are very reasonable for a meal of this quality.

The kind of wine list one could not imagine in their wildest dreams. Easily worth the detour. Cheap Coche, Raveneau etc.

le Chambolle = pretty good, open for lunch on Mondays, which can be useful. Good wine list concentrating on the village. Plenty of half bottles. Excellent cheese course.

Just got back from a week in Burgundy. My favorite meal of the trip was a lunch at Le Millesime in Chambolle-Musigny. Very fair price for the quality.

My favorite (newish) place in Beaune is without a doubt La Lune. Tiny so reservations are a challenge, but if you can get in you will find super fresh French/Asian fusion at absurdly low prices. Wine list is smallish and just OK, but what a meal...

For casual place that gives "farm to table" new meaning (because it is ON the freaking farm!!) check out La Ruchotte: https://www.lafermedelaruchotte.com. It used to be a top-secret chowhound 'must go', but I see it's even on TripAdvisor now (but only 72 reviews, so it hasn't been 'ruined' by popularity yet). Their website now allows online rez and availability check, and there are slots in May (remarkable).

My list also included Aupres du Clocher, and I'll add Chez Guy which was a fantastic lunch, but not casual (http://www.chez-guy.com).

One other mention for those who follow you to the region, but don't yet have a place to stay: Violot-Guillemard.
It's a vinyard, so you have your breakfast by the vines. Really amazing place and great wines you won't find outside of France.

I was there last Friday and what a meal I had. I went for the edamame, karaage, turbot carpaccio (half portion was enough), pigeon and creme caramel with 3 glasses of wine and some green tea at the end. It was only 72 euros and the flavors were there. Especially karaage and pigeon were just outstanding. Also the service is amazing. Can't recommend this place enough. Oh and definitely you need a reservation.

In 2012, we went to Bissoh, and had a fabulous meal. We had a 2006 Raveneau Le Foret with our meal, @ 67Euro, which was very fair for restaurant pricing :-)

La Lune is definitely excellent and not so newish any longer! I think Ma Cuisine is one of the most overrated restaurants I've ever been to. I've been three times trying to figure out why people like it other than Parker/Rovani raved about it. Wine list was excellent but food was mediocre at best.
Best,
