I think, as stupid as it sounds, you HAVE to have one of the hotdogs they serve from little bakeries on the streets. They are served in a baguette with french mustard (which is TDF is you like mustard!) and sometimes have cheese on them. They are soooo good.
Also, make sure you get a Croissant with Jam and butter, and have a beignet-
(I might have spelled it wrong) bascially the most awesome doughnut type thing!
Those are my touristy but delicious favorites! I always bring home a bottle of their french mustard from a supermarket because it is soooo good! Have fun!

Go to Fauchon's in Paris. Fauchon's is a deli and restaurant.

Look in the display window first: you will see dozens of items no visitor of Paris should miss!

Definitely escargot. The snails in France feed off the grape vines (or so I was told), which is why they're so HUGE. Delicious! I had so much escargot when I went to Paris, I couldn't get enough!

Oh you lucky girl! Make sure to go to an amazing bakery and have some croissants and pastries. Maybe a baguette sandwich if it's lunch time. Have fun!
