culinary black hole in paris?

hello all,

I've done a fair amount of research on here (and elsewhere) but I'm staying near Place Bourg-Tibourg and I'm just not finding any recommendations for places to eat near here. I realize there are many places within easy walking distance, (and I look forward to trying some of them) and yet nothing within just a few blocks ...maybe within 1/2 mile... closest is maybe Cafe des Musées,

Ate at a pretty disappointing place last night I must say... Le Chant des Voyelles ... I kept hearing chowhounds berating me for just blindly stopping somewhere and maybe I shouldn't be surprised that the tomatoes on the salad were mealy or the frites were probably frozen and thick-cut, etc. (The half-melon with port was nice enough.)

We had 2 entrees and shared a plat and had a half bottle/carafe of wine for about 40 euro. Please tell me I can do better!

We do our big 3star splurge on Tuesday, but it would be nice to find places similarly priced that disappointed less.

If I've missed a relevant discussion thread, I apologize. Thanks for the help!
