Where should a foodie live in Paris?

Thank you all for your opinions. The lively debate just shows that it doesn't look like there's a bad choice in Paris, but I appreciate the additional background on some of the arrondissements. I look forward to going and seeing where I may feel most comfortable!

Where should a foodie live in Paris?

I have been to Paris, but only for a few days over the years - not enough to figure out where I'd want to call home for a little while. I am going later this week to do some apartment hunting and I was just trying to narrow my search.

The 11th does look appealing to me. I like all the wine bars that have been opening up. The 1st and 2nd look nice, but perhaps a bit more business focused of an area than I want to be in, despite the proximity to some nice food streets. I like the Marais near the Bastille, and am also thinking about something in the Latin Quarter. It doesn't seem like I can make a bad choice.

Thanks for the input!

Where should a foodie live in Paris?

I'm moving to Paris for a few months in the fall (lucky me) and I'm trying to figure out the best arrondissement to live in to be close to wine bars, bistros, and good markets to do some home cooking. I do realize Paris has fabulous food around every corner and the great transportation puts you close to anything in minutes, but where would the best spot be for a single, 40 year old foodie to live with the best access. Loaded question I know, but thanks for the help.
