I will be in Paris Feb 27-Mar 5. My friends are coming in on Mar 1 and thus I will have 2 days by myself to explore the city. I'm a single woman, 30s, and staying in an apartment near the Palais Royale. Looking for friendly places for 1 for both lunch and dinner. I don't speak French. Places I will be going when my friends arrive include Frenchie and le Comptoir du Relais.
For my solo dinners, I would prefer to spend around $100 total (including a couple glasses of wine) and in an area that is relatively safe and walkable from my apartment. I'm more flexible for lunches but also don't mind grabbing a great sandwich and eating in the park while people watching. I'm not into offal or a lot of pork/ham or stinky cheeses but am otherwise a foodie :) I live in Manhattan (used to live in Chicago) and have season tickets to Next. My favorite restaurants in NYC are Marc Forgione, Torrisi, ABC Kitchen, the Nomad among others. Thank you in advance for your suggestions!!
