First time to Paris
We're on a business/vacation trip in London for a couple weeks and just booked a last minute trip to Paris for this coming Thursday-Saturday. We're meeting up with some friends who will be there from Norway and are staying in the vicinity of the Eiffel Tower...across the river in the 16th. Anyway, my boyfriend and I have never been to Paris and I was hoping to get some recommendations from the locals about the best places to check out. We're open to going away from our home-base, but some options that are right around the Eiffel Tower area (and not total tourist traps) would be fantastic. The boyfriend is semi-vegetarian....although I've convinced him that he has to try everything when we travel and he's taken a liking to proscuitto, so the vegetarian thing isn't a restriction, but neither of us are huge meat-eaters. We love checking out open air markets and street food for lunch to really experience a city, and then doing the formal restaurant/bistro thing for dinner. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
