A newbie to France/Paris with no French skills

Hi, I am going to Paris for a 3 days visit on a beer budget, I read many of the posts here and John Talbott had a great list of places with reasonable prices which I copied into my Iphone. I am having a panic attack just thinking about the food cost in Paris. I will be near Eiffel tower for the most part and not having any French skills I can imagine, it will be very hard to navigate through the city, and use the public transit system. On top of that the nomenclature of the French address is very different than the U.S address hence makes one to wonder what this address means "5.8 Les Petits Plats, 39, rue des Plantes in the 14th,"?? Can someone recommend ONLY one reasonably priced restaurant (20 to 28 Euro PP) for lunch/dinner with a complete Metro direction and details from the Eiffel tower area (as long as it is not Indian food, I am OK with other suggestions). I only have 200 Euro budget for food, almost 65 Euro per day. Is it feasible to have 3 meals a day in Paris on this budget or am I off the mark here?

Thanks in advance.
