My husband and i along with our 23 year old daughter will be in Paris for 2 weeks Oct 16-29. We are visiting my 20 year old daughter who is studying in Paris for her fall semester. We will most likely be going out to eat most nights and that means my husband paying for four adults, with wine, almost every night for 2 weeks! I am worried about the price tag of this gastronomic experience. We will be in an apt. in the Marais for the first week (near the Pompidou Center) and in the 15th bordering the 7th (near Blvd. Grenelle) for the second week. My daughter's apt. is in the 14th near Parc Montsouris.
I imagine most of our meals will be in the Arrons: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. I am aware of the top restaurants (Guy Savoy, etc) and some of the new "hot "ones (Regalade St. Honoure, etc). While we would love to try all of these, and may try one, what I need help with is a little list of affordable, but good quality food restaurants, cafes and bistros. We love French, also Italian, and most everything else. I list a 5-10 good places for lunch or dinner that would run $10-25 per plat (our entree) would be great. We will splurge now and then and will also grab some crepes on the street but a list of recommended, tried and true favorites would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you!
