Paris for people with simple tastes and delicate stomachs

I respect all those here who eat oysters, pigeons, tripe, blood sausages, cow brains or udders or even fois gras. I know some here might consider me a wimp but I 've been to Paris a few times and have eaten well. I recently like many others become poorer than when I was last in Paris. I've been to a few really nice places where I could eat simple foods without showing boorish behavior but also refusing any of the above. I treat owners and wait staff with kindness and respect and try to use my limited French that is sometimes appreciated and other times have been chastised. I have a few restaurants like Paul Bert that are my go to's but are a bit too expensive for me now..Any suggestions or advice for non touristy or less non touristy restaurants for people who love simple real French food would be greatly appreciated. I love wine and bread. Aloha,
