I'll be traveling to France for a conference mid-Sept and will be staying in Paris for a weekend. My goal for the weekend is not only to visit museums and flea markets but also to eat my way through the city (with a restricted budget, unfortunately!)
I'm a female grad student and will be traveling solo. My food budget is ~ 50-60 euros/day.
I'm an adventurous eater and like to try new things.

I would appreciate it if you could recommend any good/must eats in the city.
I may stay in the Marais neighborhood, but will walk long distances for good food. :P
Also, I would like to purchase some jamon, cheeses, foie gras, and other specialty items (chocolate, macarons...the list goes on..) to bring back to the US. Any suggestions on where I can buy these without breaking the bank? Also, are there any restrictions on any of these foods?
