Ok so David Lebovitz should stop asking his friends from the states to bring decent foil. I'll tell the food blogger and author.

Agree with NewbE!

You will save a few euros by cooking at home, but then their those pesky pots & pans, dishes, etc. that need to be washed dried and put away. You will also loose the experience of dinning late into the evening and walking the streets of Paris back to you apartment with a full and content stomach! Please, please, please dine out and enjoy your evening. You can cook at home but walking the streets of the City of Light after dinner is magical!

A good first day's activity if you are staying in an apartment is to wander your neighborhood. Find your local boulangerie, follow your nose to the roasting chickens, find a Nicolas wine shop and of course a fromagerie. Ask about your nearest fresh market (usually on specific days in each neighborhood). Pick up a chicken, some salad fixings and fresh fruit in season, some cheese and butter, ask for a recommendation from Nicolas for wine in your price and taste range. And on your way home pick up a fresh baquette. At the nearest grocery pick up some Bonne Maman jam, sugar, cream and coffee. You should be pretty set. For dinner have some chicken, salad, bread and wine with a bit of cheese to finish. Wrap the other half of the baquette in the plastic grocery bag and it will be able to be cut and sliced for the toaster with butter and jam for your breakfast the next morning. You will now know your neighborhood and can pick up whatever you might need each night on your way home. Especially a fresh baquette. If you are lucky enough to have a Picard's nearby you should definitely visit. The food there is really good even if frozen. Do not even imagine our frozen dinners. No comparison. After dinner at least on one night go for a bateau mouche ride. Touristy but magical. And of course stroll. Paris itself is just totally magical. Enjoy!

The easiest 'dinner' to prepare in your apartment is pick up something from local bakery/patisserie. A visit to a local supermarket (Moniprix is one) where you can pick up pate, baguette, cheese, fruit etc.

I've rented an apartment for a couple of years and tfind after having lunch out, a simple dinner is more than sufficient. Don't forget 'street food' too ... rotisserie has everything from chicken, ribs to potato lyonnaise and zucchini beignet.

The options are limitless ... bon appetit.
