And Speaking of Paris Restaurants...Any Ideas?

I think my biggest fear about my upcoming trip to Paree is eating out alone. Did you know I'm really fairly timid? I don't want to feel uncomfortable, or obliged to pay the earth. Clotilde's Edible Adventures in Paris (of Chocolate and Zucchini fame)  was a big help here. With the her book in hand and using other sources, I compiled a list of restaurants I thought looked interesting. I know you guys love to travel. Any thoughts, ideas, opinions? Hey, I did say I like to research.

Pâtisserie Viennoise, 8 rue de l'Ecole

Tugalik, 4 Rue Toullier

Les Fontaines, 9 rue Soufflot

Le Petit Prince, 12 rue Lanneau

L’Ecurie, 2 Rue Laplace. This place still has a squat toilet!!

Crepes a Gogo, 12 rue Soufflot

Les Papilles, 30 Gay Lussac

La Fete Galantes, 17 rue Polytechnique

Casa Valentino, 208 rue St. Jacques

Perraudin, 157 Rue St. Jacques

Quartier Latin, 1 rue Mouffetard - is this the restaurant in the movie Blue with Juliette Binoche?

Le Comptoir du Pantheon, 5 rue Soufflot

Le Café de la Nouvelle Mairie, 19 Rue des Fossés Saint-Jacques

Delmas, 2 place Contrescarpe

Le Jardin D’Ivy, 75 rue Mouffetard. Sounds great

La Salle a Manger, 138 rue Mouffetard

Chez Jaafar, 22 Rue Du Sommerard. I've read bad things by locals.

Le Sorbon, 60 Rue des Ecoles

Ze Kitchen Gallerie, 4, Rue des Grands Augustin. This place may be too "rich" for me. 

Ma Salle A Manger, 26 Place Dauphine, on the Ile Saint-Louis

Le Petit Zinc, 11 Rue St Benoit - I've heard bad things.

Cocotte Jolie, 18 Rue Dauphine

La Jacobine, 9 Rue Saint André des Arts

Marinara, 46 rue Dauphine

Assanabel, 38 Rue Jacob

Les Nuits des Thes, 22 rue des Beaunes

Caffe Minotti, 33, rue de Verneuil

La Ferme St. Simon, 6, rue de St-Simon, Paris, France

L’Artisan des Saveurs, 73 rue Cherche du Midi

Bread and Roses, 7 rue Fleurus

Café Constant, 139 Rue Saint-Dominique. Sounds great but out of my way.

Cordonnerie, 14 rue Saint-Denis

Le Souffle, Rue du Mont Thabor. I think I'll make a reservation here.

Try Le Timbre on The Left Bank near the Luxembourg Gardens where a chef from Manchester holds court. It is very, very good and not terribly expensive.
