First time in Paris with spouse who eats no mammals: what's good?

OK, promised the Woman in the Hat I'd take her to Paris for her (ahem...) "big birthday". So, we've got tickets and a hotel reserve in the 12th ar. for two weeks late October, early November. We don't eat mammals, ever, but will eat pretty much anything that flies (she's never met a duck she didn't like, so I've already have the Lintillac reservation) or swims.

I've got some understanding of what I should expect (no "American" breakfasts; lunch better deal than dinner in snappy places, prix fixe often the way to go..)

Some idea of our tastes: we did two trips to the UK (with kid in tow; he's gone to school now) eating mostly from the higher priced end of "Cheap Eats In London" and were pretty uniformly happy...

Assuming that I'd like, if possible, to keep us under 150-200 euro per day, at least SOME days (and I understand that some nice dinners can set me back that much per person) what shouldn't I miss?
