I am a New York City gal living in Paris for 8 months to attend Le Cordon Bleu. I live in the 6th arrondissement and am looking for suggestions for great but not expensive food in the area. I live on Rue de Rennes and have heard a lot about many bistros (Christophe, L'Ami Jean, Le Nemrod) and would love some more suggestions. Specifcally would like to know more French resto's as well as Indian or any other ethnic foods in the area. (I know there are lots in Belleville, but any in the 6th?). I welcome lunch and dinner options! Breakfast is easier since I will probably eat at home or pop into a cafe for a croissant.
I will of course be taking the metro or walking to other areas of Paris during my stay here but am taking it one arrondissement at a time, starting with the 6th since it's where I live.
I've found rue du Buci and love drinking wine there but not so much the food (for dinner, at least).
I hope this wasn't too broad but I am a food lover so welcome any suggestions!
