Les Papilles, where 4 courses are 31€, but you can have just the fabulous soup and excellent braise (changes nightly) for something like 25€. He can sit at the bar and watch the action. Or at a small table.

I think I mentioned these a while back, couple neighborhood spots that were inexpensive and excellent:

15th - L’os a Moelle (bistro) - 4 course - 38e. Sister wine bar next door for snacks, small plates.
15th - Le Troquet (bistro modern) – 3 course – 26e lunch/32-42e dinner.
2nd - L’Ardoise (bistro), 3 course – 35e

Paris Menupages is helpful and user friendly

Eatmywords brings up a good point. Lunch will definitely be within your friend's budget at most bistros. Does he have time in the middle of the day to take advantage of these prices? Perhaps his friend is on French time which usually takes into account a major break in the middle of the day for a civilized lunch.

I am returning again. Will be staying a couple of weeks in October in the 9th in St Lazare. My first stay in the right bank.
Any places of note from anyone anywhere in the city? I am bringing my mother for her first trip. Dont have any specific plans yet re dining.

We were served the same long green stem-and-leaf vegetable as on your lotte plate, explained as lisfron, on Monday at dinner. Cham, can you give me a better description of what it was? Our server could only tell us that it has a blue flower.

We like L'Table d'Eugene, a couple of blocks from the Jules Joffren metro. Modern but not extreme food, quiet enough to carry a conversation without yelling. Dinner for two with wine around 125€.

Yeah, I wasn't exactly sure what that was, so I asked.

It was liseron d'eau.

It's a type of wild grass, really.

Here, lots of pictures for ya.

P.S. It's Chambo !

Sorry, Chumbo. No offense intended. Many thanks for the clarification re liseron. Saturne had it mispelled on their menu. While I am perfectly willing to "eat with my eyes shut", I do like to know, if only after the fact, what I have in fact been served. Thanks for all of the photos also.

Neva Cuisine is near Lazare and might be a good fit for your mom. Decent/approachable food and attentive service; quiet.

Thanks Chambo. I missed this when you posted it. I am also wondering about Septime.
