Eating in Paris

I am going to Paris this month and would like suggestions on reasonably priced restaurants. Thanks.

Highly recommend you pick up a copy of "Cheap Eats in Paris". Don't be misled by the title. It would be more accurately called, "Small restaurants with wonderful ambience, terrific food, friendly service, at reasonable prices". Don't go without it!

Ditto to the "Cheap Eats in Paris." The book has some fabulous suggestions/recommendations.

As far as a particular restaurant, I'd rather not choose one. Paris is one of those cities where if you walk a block or so, you are likely to run into a good and reasonably priced restaurant. Keep an eye out for the sidewalk cafes--real good food, low prices, and wonderful atmosphere! If you like ham, try a "croque monsieur" or a "croque madame" for lunch. It's a grilled ham and cheese sandwich; the madame also has egg on it. Each cafe does it a little different, but they are nothing like a sandwich that you would get in the US! Bonne chance et bon appetit!

There's been a trend over the last decade or so of prominent Parisian chefs opening low-priced satellite restaurants. Some can be very good, such as La Rotisserie d'en Face on the rue Christine, owned by Jacques Cagna, whose very expensive restaurant is right around the corner on the rue des Grandes Augustines in the 6th. The pris fixe menu (entree, main course and dessert) runs about 200 F, or $36, per person. Avoid, however, the restaurant associated with La Tour d'Argent: La Rotisserie du Beaujolais, on the quai de la Tournelle. The food was mediocre and the room seemed overstuffed with tourists. Reservations (a day or two in advance) are always a good idea, especially on weekends. Check guidebooks for recommendations in the morning and stop by the restaurants during the day to look over the menu, then make reservations at places that seem appealing.
