Seeking impulsive, flippant Paris advice...please help!

Hello fellow 'hounds. Next month I'll be making my very first trip to Paris. I've done loads of research over the past months -- here on Chowhound, on other websites, everywhere. One thing I would certainly like to try for is regional variety in the foods we try: Brittany, Lyon, Alsace, Basque, Gascony, etc have all been areas that have popped up in our Paris restaurant research. We'll be staying in the 1st arrondisement, but the purpose of the trip is solely for the food, so we're certainly willing to travel. And aside from the 3* splurges, we're trying to keep an eye on prices at least somewhat. But really first and foremost is the food quality, as always. At this point, I've come to the realization that choosing among such great options is basically impossible -- and I need help!

I just want to get people's gut reactions to my list of more casual, (relatively) cheaper places. They're grouped only by arrondisement, not by preference. Do you happen to really hate a place on my list? Please tell me. Love a place? Please let me know! Think one of the recommendations is like 10 years out-dated? Say the word, and I'll scrap it. I am at your mercy, fellow 'hounds. Please help me eat as well as possible on this trip. In return, I'll be sure to report back on each and every meal! Hopefully even with pictures! Thanks, all.
