  1. go here and you will be very pleased:

    simple foods nicely done, especially good selection of house made aperitifs, low prices. The website kind of stinks, you have to register to use it.

    1. Kel, a search of this forum will turn up hundreds of posts with details of the favorite bistros and inexpensive eats places of the hounds here. this question has been asked and answered many, many times.

        Kel, I am totally with ChefJune on that one.

        Also, avoid the most touristy areas and you can find gems that aren't listed in the books (yet).

        BTW, 'relatively inexpensive' is something different for everyone...

          One reason I am asking this now: some posts are old, and was told repeatedly that places in Paris go down very rapidly, or become very touristy..
