SOS! boyfriend's first time in paris, need suggestions

ok, so here's the deal. I'm a student studying abroad in paris for the semester, and my boyfriend (who has never been to europe) is coming to visit me for thanksgiving (about five nights). he's just as big a foodie as I am, but I suspect not entirely won over by french cuisine. naturally, my goal is to take him to some great, classically french places that will prove him wrong. in particular, i'm trying to find a place to celebrate thanksgiving (by the way, not looking for an american style celebration at all, just a great meal). can be relatively expensive (not insane, but 100 euros per person would be ok). I've been saving up. ideally something very charming, maybe romantic.

I'd also welcome any other paris recommendations. I'm open to different price ranges, types of cuisine etc. so if there are any "must-eats" you can come up with - especially for someone's first trip to paris - don't hold back! you'd think that after spending two months in paris I would have a bunch of ideas of my own (and I do have a few) but honestly I haven't been eating out that often and I'm starting to get really overwhelmed by the process of leafing through zagat's and time out and scouring online forums. I figured that chowhounders might be just the people to come to my aid in times of food related need!!
