English. I think we'd like to focus on techniques/sauces and not as much on recipes.. Thanks for your help.

My husband and I will be in Paris for a week and would love to do a private or not cooking class. Have heard about Paris by Mouth and Wendy Lyn at the Paris Kitchen. We are experienced good cooks and take lessons wherever we go. Would love your thoughts.

Palm Beach Musts

Thanks for all the help re our 2 days in Miami. We, NYC foodies, will also be in Palm Beach for 4 nights staying with friends. Would love chowhounders input on what not to miss in the area. We love all kinds of food and, while we don't mind paying a pretty penny, we're into good value for that pretty penny. So no over the top tourist places please.

Thanks,

Quiet Italian near Jade Hotel (13th and sixth ave)

Da Andrea is good not great. The mussels are a real buy and quite good. Went to Crispo once and never went back. Thought is was highly overrated. Po can be a very nice "village" experience and the food much sophisticated than Da Andrea. If money is no object, why not go to Gotham where you will get a very good meal in a lovely environment. il Cantanori is up the block from me and, unfortunately, I have had too many disappointing meals there to ever recommend it. You might also consider Apiary, 3rd ave. and 10th. Wonderful new American and on Zagat's list of most underrated restaurants in NYC. Happy eating whatever you choose to do.

2 days in Miami

Thanks. I actually knew that about the 3 you mentioned but appreciate you taking to time to inform in case I hadn't. So what do you think of Versailles. I notice you are very active on the Miami board and would love to know your opinion. any other suggestions would be much appreciated as well.

Puerto Sagua was mentioned on another thread as was Versailles, a funny name for a Cuban restaurant. Great to know there are still some good ones.

thanks so much for your input. I've seen Michael's Genuine and Michy's mentioned quite a bit. Yardbird is new and I'll check out the menu.

2 days in Miami

My husband and I will be visiting family and friends in Florida and are taking 2 days for ourselves in Miami at the Mandarin Oriental. We live in Manhattan and love food. I've read many of the very informative postings but am still yearning for recommendations for really good Cuban food. We'd prefer to stay in the city but will have a car and can travel if the food warrants it.

I also love cacio e pepe. I often have it at it's name sake restaurant on 2nd ave. because it's in my neighborhood. I've also loved the one at Eately at the pasta bar. Though I've never had it at Lupa there pasta is generally fabulous. If you're ever in New Paltz, NY you will not be disappointed at A Tavola's version.

Neopolitan pizza on the upper west side.

So we had our margarita's at Machiavelli. Acceptable but certainly not Keste. Next time I'm going to try Buca further uptown. Thank you everyone for your feedback,

Will keep that in mind should I need something uptown again.

Thanks for the info. And you're right why go to hell's kitchen when I have keste in the hood.

So it seems that Celeste is only open for lunch on the weekends so your suggestions are really welcome. I think we're going ot go to Machiavelli. thanks again.

We actually have our hearts set on pizza. We both love Margarita's and my friend is leaving for 3 weeks in India where pizza is not exactly a treat! Thanks for these suggestions though. We'll try them at another time. I'll try and write a review of Celeste if that's were we wind up. Love the conversation.

Yes I believe you are right and I've been to both as well. I tend to like Keste better than Don Antonio but then it's a lot more convenient for me. Have you ever had pizza at Sorbillo in Naples. Chef at Keste calls him "the master". Thanks for all your info.

Thanks so much for your suggestion. We have one downtown also. Pretty good. Truthfully I'm leaning toward Celeste since it gets the best reviews in nymag. and nyt. Any comments anyone.

Thanks again. I think I will have to manage my expectations on the uws. It's unfortunate but the food up there is just not up to par.

Buca Pizza on UWS?

Thanks so much. will check this out and see if my friend can go that far uptown. If it's really as good as Motorino and Keste, that's saying something.

Thanks so much ipsedixit but I really do need to be uptown for this one for a friend. I live in the village and love Keste and all the other wonderful places to get great pizza downhere. So I've checked out Celeste and it gets pretty good reviews. What do you think?

This time we ate at Victoria's just outside the gates of Tulemar and found it to be quite acceptable. Kapi Kapi is always good.
We also hired the private cook for our villa and had 2 out of 3 fabulous meals. We ate at Cafe de Malanga again and were completely disappointed. Hope this is helpful.
