Here is the website to Les Editeurs as recommended by St Cirq. Looks interesting.

Hi elaine. We stayed at Balcons too and there is a tiny French restaurant right opposite the entrance ( sorry can't remember the name ). Reasonable prices and nice food (we had rabbit). Another place you might consider is Restaurant Perraudin at 157 rue St Jacques (lunch noon till 2.30 but doesn't open for dinner till 7.30).For another night keep in mind Allard especially for cassoulet. Enjoy the Balcons and that excellent buffet breakfast !

This comes too late to help Elaine, but -- since I used some of the suggestions on this thread on a recent trip to Paris -- I thought I’d re-pay the favor by mentioning a nice, casual restaurant I discovered in the 6th that serves an early dinner: Kiwi Corner, at 25 rue Servandoni (at the end of the street near rue de Vaugirard, close to the Luxembourg Gardens and across rue Servandoni from the Hotel Luxembourg Parc). I don’t know exactly how early they open, but a sign in front of the restaurant said that diners who arrive before 7:15 get a 20% discount.

As the name of the restaurant suggests, it’s owned and operated by New Zealanders, and the food is described as “creative cuisine from New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific” (which I guess accounts for the kiwis with which the molten dark chocolate cake I had for dessert was served). The wine list is also heavy on wines from Australia and New Zealand, with only one or two French wines (if that matters to you).

I thought the food was decent, if not inspired, the prices were reasonable, and the service was friendly (and the waiter was from New Zealand, so communicating in my less-than-fluent French was not a problem). As an added plus, there was a separate smoking section in the back, and – miracle of miracles – there was no one sitting in it when I was there. (And it wasn’t because the place was full of American tourists eating an early dinner, either – as far as I could tell, all the other customers were French.)

So, Elaine, where did you finally choose?

That's a shame about Elaine. She was always so willing to share her wealth of knowledge with us.

What's the story about Elaine? Her screename is still visible. I know she was posting the other day about Fodors.

This "banishment" thing is really starting to grate my nerves. It reeks of judgmentalism, censureship and well, just plain idiotic bad taste.
