I'm spending two days in Paris before embarking on a challenging 2 weeks bike tour in August. I'm traveling by myself and want to sample the foodie (and shopping) delights of Paris. Any recommendations for a self guided walking tour where some (arguably) "best of" local offerings can be found? (Cheese, pastries, sandwhich, to die for reasonably lunch, ??)
As an example, I found the following link : http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/493333 with a great walking tour of the Lower East Side of New York and had a great time enjoying a number of those spots when in NYC last month.
I don't yet know where I"ll be staying, so don't limit locations.
