Breizh Cafe, for Breton crepes: LINK
Jacques Genin, for chocolates and dessert/tea: LINK
Aux Merveilleux de Fred, for the namesake cream/meringue dessert
Marche des Enfants Rouges, covered food market
Du Pain et des Idees, bakery
Comptoir Poilane, for lunch with bread centric open face sandwich options on Poilanes famed bread
Gerard Mulot for pastry
Alain Ducasse chocolate manufactory, near Bastille place. Best chocolates, bars, etc of my life, and I’ve eaten more than my fair share of high end chocolate.

Very near the Marais is a little wine bar called Le Baron Rouge (its near the market called d'Aligre Beauvau). Fantastic little spot where they pull wine from cask into a container of your choosing. And at least on some days there is a guy shucking oysters out front.

L'Ambroisie is in the Place des Vosges if you have lots of money to burn and want a Michelin experience. Last check it had 3. But Hungry's recs are spot on.

Restaurants: a little out of the way - but Septime and Verjus are fantastic. I really enjoyed Dessance. And perhaps my best meal in Paris: Ponchotoux, a small "curry Japonaise" spot.



Wine Bar: Le Barav (wine bar attached to a wine shop).

Finally, way on the other side of town - but you might as well stop by "Baton Rouge," a high-end, bayou-themed cocktail bar. Hilarious.

My recs run more toward food shops, patisseries, and cafes, rather than full on restaurants (just my personal bias, as I often find multicourse, big-deal meals either too long, too heavy, or just too much food & wine at one time for me). I tend to graze when traveling & sightseeing, and I often prefer to dine in for dinner (a large part of why I choose apartments over hotels) after an especially long day...which also means I get to shop like a local.
More Marais:
-Laurent Dubois cheese shop; breathe deeply when you enter, that's the essence of France, to me.
-L'Eclair de Genie, for creative eclairs in a changing array of flavors
-Breakfast in America; yes, it's diner food, but sometimes you need a little greasy comfort. The proprietor wrote a charming book about his crazy idea of opening a diner in Paris & his trials/tribulations along the way, if you want a light plane read for the flight over.
--Miznon, a felafel joint near the way more famous L'As du Felafel just around the corner. But better than L'As, IMHO--it's an Israeli based chain. Sometimes you need a big vegetarian sandwich to offset all of the croissants and pastry.
--Marche Bastille, a street market on Thursdays & Sundays. Best if you speak a little French, but you can get by with polite nodding and just a few words & numbers. Better on Sundays than Thursdays.

I always make time to visit the Monoprix when in Paris: it's a Target style chain selling everything from hot food to clothing and cosmetics. Can be a great place for affordable souvenirs like Caudalie creams, savon de Marseilles, french sea salt, teas, etc. The clothing tends to be far more stylish than an equivalently priced US store.

I like to find the small, atmospheric, back street,family run bistros with great food. One of my favorites is Le Temps des Cerises near the Bastille on the edge of the Marais. It is on rue de Cerises just off Blvd Henry V which is the street that leads from the Bastille to Isle St. Louis. We discovered this place some years ago when we were staying in an apartment on rue Castex a block away.........I always need to get my falafel fix. When the weather is nice have a picnic lunch on Place Vosges with a take out order from L'as du Falafel.
