Are There No Good, Inexpensive Places In Paris?

Or you could go "Dutch" and bring all your food for the visit in a suitcase, and then carry it around with you, or eat every meal in the hotel, and then spend your time and money (if you have to) visiting museums, and walking around.

Please! Using the excuse of being European to talk about relative prices - of food or petrol - is absurd. Paris is Paris. I am American by passport, but am a mixture of European nationalities with many close relatives in Europe and have spent more than 12 years living and working in Europe. The average European cannot afford 30+Euro meals, much less 300+Euro meals...Paris is more like NYC, not even like France. Let up on the "you should be thankful..." whatever. There are ways to eat well, and you need not eat in the restaurants of famous chefs. Just stick to brasserie and one will do just fine in Paris. If you try to eat in any famous chef's restaurant in any of the world's cities, you'll be paying the prices only the elite can pay (or those willing to spend weeks of salary for one meal). Correc that the ingredients are fresh - which is the same whether in the bistro/brasserie, or in the resto of the major chefs. Idea/suggestion: Keep It Simple! You can do it!
