If you find yourself near the Jardin des Plantes, Grand Mosque or the Gare D’Austerlitz, you will be in the border between the 5th (Latin Quarter) and 13th (Gobelins) arrondissements of Paris. Lucky for you, there are tons of fantastic places for you to eat. Here are a few we loved in these lovely Paris neighborhoods that are a value for the money:
This is what the French call a “Gastronomic” restaurant. We found it to have a lot of touches of Italian cusisine, which was a nice break from all the classic French we had been having. The wine list was superb and the service was lovely. On top of that they have some very solid lunch deals (for Paris)

Great if you’ve been wanting to go to Le Bernadin in NYC, but can’t afford it. L’agrume’s chef, Franck Marchesi-Grandi worked at Eric Ripert’s kitchen as well as many notable ones in Paris. It shows. The seafood dishes are superb. Go early (get there at 11am) or make reservations, the restaurant is tiny and fills up fast.
