Les Saveurs de Pierre Emile

The best savory tarts and fruit compote sans sucre, just a stone's throw away. We finally went there for lunch, and it was delicious.  Our favorite, the tomato tart, the asparagus, bacon, and dill.  And the couscous looked great. 62 rue de Vaugirard, 6me. Sadly, this old classic is closed permanently. Saveread more

Paris on Less Than $100 Per Day – Fantasy?

However, the issue isn't whether it's possible as a parlor stunt, but how could you have a fulfilling Paris experience while skipping most of the things around you.

Best advice if you really want to stick to this budget: get a hotel outside the city on the RER line and zip in in the morning and go back out to sleep.
