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.
