Have two nights in Paris in October - a Saturday and a Sunday. Staying in the 12th arr - Boulevard de Picpus - with a friend who is a decided anti foodie and likely to faint at anywhere expensive.
That said, i don’t want to eat rubbish all weekend So anywhere for breakfast ( even a decent boulangerie or patisserie where we can pick something up on the go ) or dinner in that area ?
Anglophile ( not likely to be easy in October, I accept ) without being chock full of Americans would be great. Even if it is a small pizza place recommendation, I would be grateful - especially if they are open on Sunday evening. Any streets with a bar or two we could wander into for a beer ? Any ‘craft’ beer places walking distance from that area ?
During the day time we will likely be Versailles, Jeu du Palme/Orsay, Pompidou. Any lunch places which are reasonably priced in these areas ?
Cuisines my friend would most like
- simple French bistrot
Apologies this isn’t a typical Onion request but I still haven’t recovered my reputation after I took him to a nice restaurant in Berlin and he declared the menu too short (!) and that there was ‘nothing’ he could eat.
Thanks in advance and happy to provide greater clarity if need be
