    Spending a month in Paris. Any recommendations on what to see outside of the typical?
    Living in the 4th for now. All restaurants seem to be horribly overpriced. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

    For a museum that's under-attended, try the Musee de Petit Palais (though you seem to have hit the Pompidou on a slow day). I've never been in there when it hasn't been virtually empty, and it's quite a presentable collection - for any city where there is no Louvre.

    As for cheaper restaurants, try the Left Bank, or the outlying neighborhoods (the 13th, and 14th, perhaps - the 13th is Paris's Chinatown, among other things, IIRC - the 4th is quite painfully fashionable at the moment).

    I stayed in Le Marais last year. Nice place reminded me of the French West Village. Eat in the 16th :devil: . If you want good recommendations you should probably talk to Fuuma.

    Thank you, pal; I'm certain it should be well in the end. Given my satisfaction with RTW and my acceptance that Edward Sexton will never cut me a suit, this does feel like a crazy leap, but one I'm going to see through

    Merci. And if by "painfully fashionable" you mean out west hollywooding west hollywood then yes, you are 100% correct.


    Must have been a millionaire, or so it seems. Everything is twice the price.

    Anything else anybody knows? Cool jazz clubs, classical music concerts? Hidden gems of restaurants? I'll be here for a while, so I have plenty of time to explore. And so as not to hijack the thread with useless crap, here are two more fits from tonight:

    Acecow, try wandering around Monmartre along Rue Abbesses near Rue Lepic. There are some reasonable local cafes. When you have finished dinner walk down to Blanche Metro. Get on Bus 30 heading west. This goes via the Arc to the Trocadero. From Trocadero there is a great view of the tower lit up in the dark. Then it is a nice walk down to the river.
