The top options for gourmet tastes and reasonable budgets in Paris are here on this list. Note that Table Restaurant, by Chef Bruno Verjus, is listed at number one because masterful preparation aside, this high of quality fresh products and raw ingredients will cost you just as much if you buy them at the market yourself, let alone have them prepared so beautifully for you. For those looking for a bit of an ethnic experience in Paris, both Marclee, which offers Asian-fusion cuisine and Le 1K which has mainly Peruvian dishes on its menu with some Asian twists, are unique dining values.
More dining value for your money can be had at both Pinxo and the new Marais addition, Grand Coeur. At Pinxo, a Chef Alain Dutournier restaurant, you get the chance to sample from this famous chef's repertoire in a relaxed setting and with dishes native to his southwestern France origins. Another famous executive chef, Mauro Colagreco, has designated his trusted second from Mirazur to run the kitchens at Grand Coeur, literally tucked in the heart of the Marais in an old cobblestoned courtyard.
And for those who are really worried about getting their money's worth at mealtime, a French phrase you will want to learn and keep your eye out for is à volonté, which means “all you can eat.”
