Paris Dining on a Family Budget...with Adventurous Teens

WillinTO | Feb 20, 201207:04 PM

We'll be in Paris for 5 days in March. My partner and I have already done most of the top spots on past trips, and with a 13 and 16 year old in tow this time; we're operating with a far more disciplined budget than normal. Fortunately they are both budding foodies (yup, we're proud parents!) so we're eager to give them a broad range of experiences, as this is really their first trip to a true culinary destination,

Generally I'd like to try to stay under 30 to 35 Euros per person for dinners, ex wine. We’re looking to give the girls a range of experiences from classic bistros to more innovative or experimental places. Quality is very important, atmosphere will significantly enhance their experience and fame/name is totally irrelevant.

We’re staying at a hotel near the L’Arc de Triomphe, so one or two places within walking distance (we’re all reasonably fit) would be helpful. Plus, given this is the girl’s first trip to Paris, we’ll be looking for lunches near the main sites (Louvre, Notre Dame, Tour Eiffel, etc).

Thanks in advance. Your ideas and suggestions will help launch two nascent chowhounders on their first gastro tourism adventure.
