As I continue my planning... I'm looking for places in Paris that have very good food, traditional is fine, but that aren't particularly stuffy.
Price is an issue, but I am also trying to pack as light as possible for the trip.
I'll probably be wearing the shoes that you can see at the bottom of the post. I.e. not straight-up running shoes, but not something that i can wear to fancier places.
Souphie, if you're reading this - didn't you post something about a bisto that you particularly liked, that was relatively informal (not elysees du vernet, in any case) , the kind w/the daily specials on the ardoise, etc.
in any case, for anyone, i'm open to suggestions.
