Has anyone been to "Chez Bruno" near Lorgues, South of France

Thank you all for your replies, has anyone been to "Le Bistrot d'Antoine" in Nice, I've read good reviews both in the Red Michelin guide for 2012 as well as other reviews. It seems to be reasonably priced and loved by the locals.

Yes, we will be staying at Eze Village, which is a small town between Nice and Monaco.

What andaba says is very interesting, do you know of another restaurant where we might expect to get the real thing at reasonable prices? His son's restaurant in Nice apparently closed. (and based on what you say about Bruno's I wonder what kind of truffles he had!) We will be in the Cote de A'zure area and Provence in early November.

I am planning to travel to South of France and will be staying close to Nice, this well known restaurant is about one hour from Nice. Any idea about the prices, last time I was there was around 8 years ago. Specialty is truffles. Would appreciate this info to make plans.

Best place to buy oysters in Miami?

Try" Captain's Tavern"Seafood Market in Miami, they have both local oysters and also different type oysters brought in from the west coast and north east. Great place for other fresh seafood as well. For cheaper local oysters try "Sonia's" seafood market also in Miami on 8th street.

Smoking in San Sebastian Pintxo Bars

I was in SS in late October and the smoking at most of the bars is pretty bad, we did a lot better when we ate early, when they had just openned like for lunch, there's a lot less people and less smoke. I is not easy to find "non smoking" pintxo bars. But the food is truly outstanding even in the smaller ones, so take your time and look around. Just before you enter the "casco antiguo" (which is old part of town where most bars are) there are a couple of bars with terraces, where you could also seat outside (weather permitting, it might be too cold now), they charge a little extra for the food and drink if you do decide to eat there, but it's worth it if you can avoid the smoke.

Has anyone traveled to Arcachon Bay near Bordeaux to eat oysters?

Thank you for your answer, we'll be going at the end of October, I was told the small town of Cap Ferret was worth going to, seems you can buy oyster directly from fishermen.
