On one hand

Rob,

On one hand, you could search this forum with the keyword - Paris and many hits will turn up.  Use the search box/button at the top of this page.

On the other hand, Paris is riddled with affordable (cheap) eateries.  Wander around and look into the various places. The good ones are usually busy and not just hosting a bus load of Chinese tourists.  happy.gif

If the place is full of local residents....even better!  The more colourful and cheaper (student haunts) areas are Marais, Latin Quarter, and off, off St Germain de Pres.

An option is the N.African enclave in the Latin Quarter with cheap food from Maroc (Morocco), Algeria, Tunisia in the form of tajine stews with cous cous. The cous cous is free flow but you have to pay for extra stew. Seating may be along benches in a communal style.

 

Regards,

MTF

Another way to do it for mid price is to do lunch at the 3-star Michelin restaurants. What areas are you going to be in Paris?

Close by on the Isle St. Louis is Berthillon ice cream. We did lunch at the Hotel Costes and the foie gras terrine was amazing!

+1 on all those recommendations

I'm not that familiar with Paris, but have personal experience with the ones DRMW mentioned and they're all good. Brasserie Lutetia, the courtyard eatery inside Hotel Coste, and Bertillon are reasonably priced and have great food. And as recommended some of the high end restaurants like Guy Savoy and Le Meurice have what I consider a bargain for their pre-fix lunch. Have a fun time and let us know if you find any good places.

We just got back from Paris last Oct..

February 28 2011, 3:42 PM 

and the Purists were instrumental in my huge tab for fine dining..J/K

We also stayed in the St. Germain area and the place is filled with mid-priced restaurants. We were right across Galerie Commerciale Le Marche Saint-Germain and tons of good and mid priced places.

Of course, we highly recommend Guy Savoy.

When we were there, Guy Savoy had an internet lunch special. You may want to check it out.

We feel in love with Paris.

Boy do I have ideas

Lots of places. Here are favorites. Allard in the 6th. It's really back! Do not miss the duck with olives, one of the great world classics. And if St. Jacques are still in season start with a half order swimming in beurre blanc.

Brasserie de l'Ile. On the Ile St. Louis in the 4th. Always reliable.

L'Epi Dupin in the 6th. A bit avant guard but wonderful.

Benoit. A bit more expensive than the others. Go for lunch or Sunday nights when lots of places are closed.

Le Grand Colbert. Charming and you can forgive its size or that it is owned by a group.

Au Trou Gascon in the 13th. Love the place. Owned by Alain Dutournier.

These are all reliable, wonderful places all with a great feeling of being in Paris
