Good Places to eat in Paris... Please add your suggestions!

Hi Everyone...

This is a group participation post.  I received a comment from Flo, an excited mom in Washington whose making a one month trip out to Paris in June.  Here's her comment:
"Hello Leesa:
We are thrilled to be going to Paris for one month in mid June! We'll be renting a 3-bedroom in the 5eme, close to Rue Mouffetard. I'll be celebrating my birthday on July 5 along with my husband, daughter, sister and nephew. Can you please suggest a memorable restaurant, with great food (French or ethnic), not too pricey, please, with a lovely atmosphere? Gardens are always a plus for us! Thanks so much!"

First of all, Wow, Flo... that's wonderful that you are all going to spend a month here in Paris!  Right on Rue Mouffetard, there are soooo many restos!  I've been to a good crêpe resto that was really nice, but I forget the name!  There are ALL sorts of restaurants there - you can spend the month eating there!  hehe : )  I know a lot salon de thé type of restaurants rather than a proper resto, so I can email a list if you can shoot me an email to LGIRASOL@earthlink.net.   

I found this blog while I was looking... Streets of Paris. Check it out.  My hubby says that Chez Papa is good - It's Southwestern cusine (David knows about this cuisine, since he's from the southwest)...  I don't know the resto itself, but here is the link.  Chez Papa HERE.  It's in French, but you can maneuver through the site and check it out... 

Some of my favs in Paris are of course Aimee's, L'Oisive Thé and Bhai Bhai Sweets @ Chateau d'Eau.  (It's Indian cuisine).  Hopefully, others can add there favs here!

Chez Papa is good...
Not amazing, but good.

If you want amazing South West (and you can't go to the South West) I'd advise "Le Comptoir de la Gastronomie" in the 1st, at the corner of Rue Etienne Marcel and Rue Montmartre (on rue Montmartre).

(for those who don't know, South West French cuisine is the best French cuisine, and as such, the best cuisine in the world)

A few months ago I wrote a blog entry about cheap and good eats in Paris.

It may need to be updated a bit, I especially need to add "Chez CHAM" (3, rue du Roi Doré, in the 3rd, Metro St-Sebastien-Froissart) which is my new best restaurant that serves French food for less than €20.

Apart from that, Leesa, I know you're still coping with having an empty inbox, but leaving your e-mail as such (without blanks or "at" instead of "@" etc) will fill it up real quick... with Spam...

There are some good restaurant recommendations on David Lebovitz's blog.

Since she's going to be on rue Mouffetard, I think she'll find several "memorable" restaurants just outside her apartment.
