bistro dining in the 6th or 7th

Hi all -

I'll be in Paris with my dad in two weeks, and would love some thoughts on places.
Thanks to your recommendations last time, I will be going back to Bastide Odeon, which was fabulous. We're staying right near there.

I usuallly am in the 6th, and venture to the 4th...but lately I see that a lot of your suggestions are in the 7th. So, i'm thinking it may be worth exploring? I've been to Fontaine de Mars, and the cassoulet was fanastic.

I've been to Le Comptoir, and plan to return for lunch. Excellent. Other than that, is there any place that i need to explore in the 6th? I've heard of Le Timbre and Chez George....thoughts? I've heard there are interesting bistros on the other side of the garden, but have not fully explored that area.

Now, for the 7th, Le Petit Troquet, chez l'ami jean, and au bon acceuil are the three that always come up. Should we stay with those three, or are there others in a similar vein in either arron.?

Also...what are your thoughts on Balzar? is it a beautiful space...or just a tourist trap a la les deux magots?

Thank you in advance! and if any of you come to boston....i can completely set you up.
