Although I am not from Paris but still French and since you know food is everything for the us, below are places that will help you to remember the City of Lights!
The ones who Love their food , Love Life
Some places might be a little bit pricey, but you’ll keep a lovely memory forever, may it be for the food or the atmosphere.
Le paradis du fruit http://www.leparadisdufruit.fr/
Unique by its concept, combined in the same place a restaurant, a fruit room and a glacier and offers you a light, fresh, healthy, tasty and original range of products around a specialty: the fruit.
You will be able to try something original, tasty and a pleasure to the eyes as well as your stomach without feeling guilty about your waistline!
Location:In several locations but I recommend the one on the Champs Elysees.

Prices: Around EUR 20-30 per person for a drink-main course-dessert

The Buddha bar: www.buddha-bar.com
The decoration and ambiance are amazing with a giant Buddha sitting right in the Middle, subdued lights and chilling out music (that’s where the album ‘Buddha bar comes from.)
You can eat in the restaurant or simply chill out for a drink upstairs, and just for the settings, it is worth a try!
The place belongs to the George V restauration group( other places : Barfly, Barrio Latino…)
Location: Few around the World but if you are in Paris you have to do this one!
