Where to eat on first night in Paris?

We will be three people visiting Paris in mid-June and will undoubtedly be tired when we get to our apartment in Arrondissement #5. Any suggestions for tasty but simple dinner close to Quai de la Tournelle?

PANCAKES ALONG THE DELAWARE

IF you want lighter than air LEMON RICOTTA Pancakes go to Nutt's on Rt. #29 in Titusville. After the pancakes take a healthy walk along the beautiful Delaware and Raritan Canal which is across the road.

NINE DAYS IN PARIS IN MID JUNE 2012

TWO FRIENDS AND I WILL BE STAYING IN A LEFT BANK APARTMENT FOR 9 DAYS WITH A BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF NOTRE DAME. OF COURSE WE WILL BE LOOKING TERRIFIC FOOD OF ALL SORTS, MOST REASONABLY PRICED WITH A FEW SPLURGES INTERMINGLED.
ANY SUGGESTIONS WILL BE APPRECIATED . I KNOW ONE CAN EAT POORLY IN PARIS FOR TOO MUCH MONEY AND WE WOULD LIKE TO AVOID THAT.
ANY AND ALL IDEAS ARE WELCOME.

God Eats in Somerville area?

Would like to plan a great lunch with my special sister somewhere in the Somerville area. Can anyone recommend a restaurant they have eaten in within the last month?

The Gilt Club , Portland, OR

We will be in Portland for a few days in mid-August and I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with this restaurant, good, bad or indifferent? I heard about a quail dish they serve which I would like to try. Has anyone had it?

Santa Lucia Restaurant behind Piazza Navona

Two friends and I had lunch at this lovely,quiet spot just off the Piazza Navona and had a wonderful starter which we remember as a Courgette Tortino with Parmesan Sauce. Has anyone had it and if so, is there a recipe to be had? We asked but they were unwilling to part with it. Please help. It is amazing!!!

Kairo Kafé - New Brunswick, NJ

Thanks to all the New Brunswick area denizens for weighing in on Kairo Kafe. Sounds like it's not worth the short trip from Princeton area to check it out. We continue to hunt for a great Middle Eastern restaurant between New Brunswick and Bordentown. Any input?

Egyptian Food in New Brunswick

Today's Princeton Packet has a review for a place named the Kairo Kafe in New Brunswick. Has anyone eaten there and what did you think? We spent time in the real Cairo and would love to get a review from the central NJ Chowhounds before we go.
