Yes, do a search on 'restaurants in paris', then filter by forum and 1 year and newer. You'll have to look through a list of threads but there are some with recommendations in the 5th and 6th.

If it's a pretty day, I enjoy having lunch in the Luxembourg Gardens at La Terrasse de Madame. It's located right near the Medici Fountain.

If you are in to the film MIdnight in Paris, the restaurant Polidor is just a few blocks away from the Luxembourg Gardens. It's where the literary crowd ate in the 20's and 30's including Hemingway. It's been open since 1845 which just blows me away. The oldest building in Idaho was built in 1850! I've not eaten there but I love the charm and history....and maybe I will eat there next trip!

What a fun time you will have!

I have personally eaten dinner at La Closerie de Lilas in the 6th. I loved it. I have also had lunch at Restaurant La Mosquee de Paris in the 5th, it was delicious!

I have these places marked in my Google Maps which means it was recommended on this forum or other such travel related site.

La Maison du Jardin, La Cuisine de Philippe, La Jacobine, Desi Road, Café de la Mairie

Breizh Cafe near the Odeon Metro stop has wonderful crepes and galettes. There are other locations (it's a small chain) but this is my favorite of the ones I've tried.
I also love Bouillon Racine -- very good food and an absolutely gorgeous original art deco design. You would need a reservation for this one.

I will second Breizh cafe. I went to a different location. I only went there to make my husband happy (he was at home). He said how can you go to Paris and not eat a crepe? I didn't think I was a crepe fan until I had the buckwheat savory crepe. I had the Popeye which had spinach and cheese, with a fried egg on top of course. YUMMY.

I have added this location to my Google maps and I will be eating there in May. I can't wait.

We enjoyed Le Descartes in the 5th last year, 1 Rue Thouin. We had roast chicken and duck confit, and Stan had what he called "the best creme brulee ever!"
