Salty Xoco

I don't like too much salt myself, but LITERALLY my g/f and I eat there at least once a week, to the point where they know our names. That being said, they obviously do use salt but I can maybe remember only once or twice in the past year that it was overpowering. Give it another whirl

Aspen Chowhound coming to Chicago: ISO Good Pizza Near Drake Hotel

I like them all but Lou Malnati's easily takes the cake with toppings on their Pizza. Nothing better than a sausage pizza from there

If you could only eat one meal in London...

My g/f and I went to Jamie Oliver's Fifteen in London (the restaurant with the course meal), we expected it to be really good but it ended up being both of our's favorite dining experience. Everything we had ordered on the course menu was exceptional

Paris: Le Chateaubriand vs. Le Comptoir du Relais

cortez, I was in Paris and made it a strong effort to get into Le Chateaubriand in August and it did not disappoint. It was a great atmostphere with mixtures of ingredients that should not work but definitely do. And it is definitely worth the money for their 5 course menu being at a great price. Let us know what you choose!

Frenchie/Les Papilles

I looked a couple of threads down about Les Papilles and seen that as of the end of July they are on summer holiday, if anyone knows what day they may be back and in regards to Frenchie as well, I would really appreciate it! I did send them an e-mail and hopefully they will respond

Frenchie/Les Papilles

Does anyone know if Frenchie or Les Papilles is currently closed in August? I will be in Paris from August 18th thru August 21st and already got a reservation at Le Chateaubriand. I noticed an old thread where it was closed until August 15th or 16th and someone else had said the 25th or 26th? I would like to make reservations there but already tried to book La Cordonnerie and they are closed during that time! If they are closed, can anyone give me a good substitute with around the same price range and level of quality of the food? I have done some research and it looks like La Cordonnerie and Les Papilles are some of the best food around but Frenchie (although good food, just alot of hype) - I would appreciate the help!!!!

Le Chateaubriand

Hello, I will be in Paris for a few days (August 18-21st to be exact) - does anyone know if Le Chateaubriand is closed in August at all (as I have just recently noticed that many places in Paris close up until around the middle of the month of August.) Also, is it easy to book over the phone with Paris restaurants (as in, do many of them speak English?) I hope they are not closed as I was looking forward to trying it!!! Thanks!
