I'm a college student, and I'll be in Paris for the fall semester this year. I know everyone's always posting for Paris recommendations on this board, but I'm different, I swear! I'm not rich, I'm mostly looking for lunch, and I'll be there for four months!
So I'd like your favorite cheap, off-the-beaten-path (or not) places for a quick lunch. All cuisines, too! I don't know where in the city I will be residing or studying yet, but I'm totally willing to go anywhere accessible by métro. If there's something splurge-worthy that I shouldn't miss, let me know and I can think about it--but I don't want to spend all the money I'm earning this summer (bartending & waiting tables 6 days a week!) in Paris, let alone on food.
Also: favorite bars. I like friendly and affordable over chic any day.
Thanks so much for any help y'all can give. I'll probably post for more help as September creeps closer.
