First time in Paris

My husband and I are catching the train to Paris tomorrow where we are spending 8 nights. I'm a little nervous as I don't know any French apart from:
Au revoir
and thanks to grade 4,5, and 6. The days of the week and the months of the year.

I'm not interested in any fine dinning, I just want to be able to order an omelette (I hear they are good in France) and some tasty dishes like coq au vin. While I'm at it, what else would you recommend trying?

If we just take our everyday manners and a smile will that get us by in Paris? Or should I take a few cut sandwiches from London and eat in our apartment? Of course I'm kidding!
Either way I'm looking forward to the experience.

Thanks in advance.
