Shamefully unprepared for a week in Paris!

That's funny, we live in NYC too! The main thing that this city has taught us is that when there are a million culinary options, many can be a major waste of money, time and calories. But it's comforting to know that we'd have to work hard to go wrong. Thanks so much!

Shamefully unprepared for a week in Paris!

I don't know how this happened, but somehow my boyfriend and I booked a lovely 2 week trip to France (1 week in Paris, 1 week in Provence - I'll post that request on another board!) 6 months ago, and we've not locked down a single, solitary food destination! This is extremely unusual for us - as an example, when we last traveled (to Spain) I had every meal and snack locked down in an excel spreadsheet, with plenty of "alternates." I hang my head in shame.

We're looking for any and all suggestions, from street vendors to nicer dinners (maybe try to keep the cap at $100-$150pp?) We love everything, and don't shy away from foie, marrow, escargot or other regional delicacies. We're of course looking for French cuisine, but are very open to other options - I've heard that Moroccan and Korean food there is actually pretty amazing! We'll be there from April 18th to the 25th, so any help/guidance would be MUCH appreciated.
