Solo San Franciscan in Paris

Looking for some suggestions for breakfast, lunch and dinner in Paris -- really, I'm not joking. Have been underwhelmed by my choices so far. I'm staying in the 5th, but am moving over to the 4th, across from the Pompidou at the end of the week. For me, the quality of the food is the #1 priority, as well as being solo diner friendly. Doesn't have to be a swanky place.

In SF, I generally grab a seat at the bar -- many an enjoyable dinner has been had that way at Bar Tartine, Delfina, Pizzeria Delfina, Clementine, etc...

Am done with the picnics -- have had lots of those, and disappointed by some of the very lousy bistros I've wandered into so far. So clearly spontaneity isn't working.

I'll try Les Bouquinistes this week -- anyone know if it's single diner friendly? Really, am not super fussy. Yes, I've got a good handle on the croissants and bread. But want good coffee, a good breakfast of something other than croissant or bread sometime this week, a simple light lunch (good soups? good salads? good quiche?), and a kick ass dinner (don't eat seafood though).

Help. (I can't believe I'm in Paris and writing this but really -- it's day 3 and I'm kind of getting desperate.)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
