French lunch (or dinner) on the cheap in Paris
These is no doubt that Paris is a city full of amazing restaurants, but if you are visiting for any certain length in time it can start to have an impact on your wallet! What I like to do is to find the nearest "farmers" market in the neighborhood I am staying at in the morning and shop for a picnic (bread, cheese, charcuterie, fruits, olives...) and then eat at a nice restaurant for lunch (the menu is cheaper than dinner) and then for dinner I can picnic on what I bought at the market either in a park or near the Seine - its lovely and makes your food budget go a long way!
